Health and Safety

We take every precaution to safeguard patients and staff whilst at the practice. We follow all current guidelines related to health and safety. We comply with regulations among other matters related to COSHH and x-rays.

Cross infection control

Your health and safety is of the utmost importance to us. We have therefore invested in the latest equipment to sterilizes instruments to the standards demanded by best practice guidelines of the Department of Health. Instruments are initially cleaned in a washer disinfector, inspected under magnification and sealed in bags before sterilization. The sealed instruments are sterilized in vacuum autoclaves. The sterile instruments are then only opened when ready to use for each patient. Many items we use are disposable.

This process complies with current best practice so our patients can have peace of mind when undergoing treatment.

If you have any questions or wish to view the process we would be happy to help.

In addition we use the Alpron system to ensure the quality of the water supply from the dental equipment.
