How do you keep your patients safe?

We take stringent measures to keep our patients and ourselves safe and protected from Covid-19 and other health threats. We have implemented the following:

 

  • Hand sanitiser in reception for use on entry and exit
  • Use of overshoes and mopcaps
  • Use of washable drapes during treatment procedures
  • All surfaces including doorhandles are sanitised between each patient
  • Use of air filters during aerosol generating procedures
  • Sterile packaging and autoclaving of all instruments and drills after single use
  • We open back sliding doors and front door whenever possible to get fresh air flowing through the suite
