Infection Control & Safety

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

 

We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

 

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies. We are up-to-date on new guidance that has been issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.

Throughout the day all clinical areas and common areas, including door handles and surfaces will be regularly disinfected, this is in addition to our normal cross infection protocols.

 

The whole team will be wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), in line with government guidance. This may look different to what we have previously worn. This is to keep you and our team safe.

 

Regular hand washing will be adhered to by the whole team, we will also ask you to do the same, when entering and leaving the practice.

 

Social distance measures have been introduced and screens have been added to our reception area.

Keeping you safe since lockdown

The Government made the announcement on the 28th May 2020, that Dental Practices can re-open from 8th June 2020.  This time frame only gave us 6 working days to re-commission the surgery. We had been working behind the scenes during lockdown, preparing for when we could re-open the surgery.

 

We re-opened the surgery on 15th June 2020, as we wanted to ensure that the practice was safe for our patients and our staff.

 

Our Dental Chairs were serviced and upgraded to perform the correct suction power recommended to make aerosol generated procedures safer.

 

The practice water supply had Laboratory Legionella Testing and the Dental Chair waterlines were tested for bacteria. The test results came back clear.

 

All equipment in the practice has been serviced.

 

The clinical team had Medical Emergency Training, in line with the new COVID-19 guidelines.

 

They also had training on Donning and Doffing (putting on and taking off) the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

 

The whole team has been trained in the new ways of working, we are so please to be welcoming patients through our doors again.
