Cross Infection Control

At the Facial & Dental Aesthetic Studio, we take the wellbeing and safety of our patients very seriously. We understand the concerns many patients have over cross infection control. Our Practice follows all of the national guidelines for cross infection control and our staff have regular training in cross infection procedures. We use single-use materials wherever possible.

Decontamination suite

Decontamination suite

Our Practice has also installed a state-of-the-art decontamination suite and we follow a strict cross infection control protocol to protect our patients and staff. All our used instruments are firstly cleaned and washed by a medical device called a washer-disinfector. The washed instruments will then be transferred to an autoclave for high temperature sterilisation. All the sterilised instruments will be stored in sealed pouches ready to be used by the dental team. Strong powerful chemicals which are designed to kill bacteria and viruses are used to clean all the working surfaces and dental chair between patients. A new set of disposable gloves and face mask are worn for every patient. These simple precautions are proved to be highly effective in the prevention of cross infection. If you have any questions regarding our cross infection procedures, or wish to have a guided tour of our decontamination suite, please ask a member of our dental team.
