The Windermere Dental Practice has a responsibility for the safety of both our patients and ourselves. We take this responsibility very seriously and follow strict guidelines from bodies such as The General Dental Council and The British Dental Association.
It may be helpful to explain some of our procedures further.
We adhere to a strict policy of cross-infection control. All instruments are either single-use or have been sterilized using our autoclaves. Disposable instruments include endodontic instruments and the slow burrs from the handpiecese.
We provide protective eyeglasses and bibs for patients and wear facemasks and protective eyewear ourselves. Hands are cleaned before and after each patient using specially prepared medical scrub. We wear a pair of disposable gloves, which are changed for each patient.
All our team members are fully immunized, vaccinated, and attend regular courses on cross infection control.
