In order to keep you and our staff safe, we have implemented the following measures:
Social distancing within the practice:
- Reducing the number of staff members working at the same time
- Restricted patient access to reception and entry to the practice
- Staggering of appointments to limit contact with other patient’s entering and leaving the practice, and
Safeguarding of all patients and staff entering the practice:
- Triaging of patients before their appointments
- Temperature checks on arrival at the practice
- Wearing of facemasks while in the communal areas of the practice
- Use of sanitising hand gel and regular handwashing, and Hydrogen Peroxide (1.5%) mouthwash before examinations or treatment
- Additional PPE measures are being used for staff and patients for routine check-ups and minimally invasive treatment
- Enhanced PPE is worn by our staff for procedures that create an aerosol. This includes a respirator, fluid resistant masks, fluid resistant gowns and face shield, and
- A fallow time is allowed between aerosol generating procedures for the aerosol to settle before the treatment room is thoroughly cleaned
Cleaning of the practice:
- Daily deep cleaning of the practice,
- Continuous cleaning and sanitising of the practice throughout the day
We have also gone above and beyond and implemented the following measures:
- Dentair Filtration Devices: DentAir offers the highest levels of air purification for dental practices. Reaching over 99.99% sterilisation rate (Test Data Available Below), this system draws in and filters out harmful bacteria, viruses, dental matter and pathogens, to disperse clean and safe air, quickly and quietly.
- 3ShapeTrios scanner: The scanner reduces the need for dental impressions that can induce coughing or gagging.
- Rubber dam: Although not a new technique, it is now being used on a more regular basis to reduce the viral load while undergoing dental treatment.
