The importance of high standards of hygiene and cleanliness in preventing the transmission and spread of infection has been a topic that has generated an enormous amount of media coverage in the recent weeks due to the current outbreak of the coronavirus, Covid-19.
We wanted to reassure all our patients about the high standards dental practices are already required to work to and to stress that as a practice we work tirelessly to ensure we meet the high standards that are expected of us. We do this because it's the right thing to do and not because we are told to do it by the regulators.
For that reason, all our patients should feel confident that you are safe at our practice. You will no doubt have observed many of the stringent standards we work to first hand and of course many procedures designed to protect both your and our team members also take place without being seen in the surgery.
If you have any queries about the infection control procedures at our practice, please don't hestitate to let us know or ask us about it when you next visit.
