Infection control standards

Your safety is important to us. Our practice undertakes yearly accreditation with results that not only meet but exceed the standards set out by ACT Health.

We autoclave (heat and pressure sterilise) all handpieces and dental instruments before each use, and thoroughly disinfect the dental surgery between each and every patient.

Our commitment to strict infection control also involves using single use disposable materials whenever possible, and the use of barrier wraps over all work surfaces in the dental surgery.
