Proper infection control procedures in medical and dental environments prevent the spread of infectious viruses and bacteria.
At Strand and Vale Dental we exceed the minimum standards and guidelines set, and support the introduction of legislation and accreditation of infection control procedures in dental practices.
We ensure your safety…
- Where possible we use single use instruments, and utilise an autoclave to sterilise all multiple use dental instruments after use. This machine kills bacteria and viruses by using extremely hot steam and pressure.
- Antibacterial hand gels, in combination with thorough hand washing is routinely undertaken before, during and after every treatment.
- Our staff wear protective gloves, masks, glasses and gowns, and regularly undergo further education to stay abreast of the latest standards and practices in hygiene control.
