Dentistry in the news

Dentistry has certainly been in the news recently with the dentist from Nottingham and his dubious cross infection techniques. This therefore puts the spotlight on dentistry as a whole but also allows us to respond and let our patients know exactly how our cross infection policy works. This is what we do: 1. Alcohol hand rub prior to every patient and new gloves. 2. Every single instrument is taken from a pre sterilied bag that has a date when it was sterilised and when it should be sterilised again it not used within the time frame. 3. All used instruments are hand cleaned and scrubbed using dental disinfectant. 4. Instruments are then placed in an ultrasonic bath. 5. Instruments are then sterilised in an autoclave. 6. The autoclave has a printer to verify that the correct temperatures have been reached and for the recommended time frames. 7. The instruments are then dried and sealed and dated within the bags. We have invested in a new autoclave recently, the Little Sister 2010 which is extremely reliable and effective. We also ensure all surfaces are cleaned thoroughly before and after every patient. The practice is also professionally cleaned every day after clinics have been run using high quality disinfection techniques. Earlier this year, we invested in high quality flooring within both surgeries to ensure effective cleaning. We constantly strive to improve our services to ensure to a safe environment for our staff and patients. However, we welcome feedback and if you feel we could be doing something better or could recommend an improvement, please let us know.
