Sterility at the practice

We pride ourselves on a very high standard of sterility and cross-infection control and all our staff are carefully trained in these techniques. We sterilise our instruments using an autoclave which destroys bacteria and viruses. We also use disposable instruments which are thrown away after use. Dentists and nurses always wear disposable sterile gloves when working which are changed for each patient.

We are very aware of the dangers of cross-infection. We would like you to be reassured that we take every possible precaution.
