Sealed sterile dental instruments

Infection control and decontamination

We follow strict procedures

At Parkhill Dental Practice, we follow very strict HTM-01-05 infection and decontamination protocols and procedures to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

All our instruments are deeply cleaned, carefully inspected, put into thermal disinfection, and inspected again in our specially designed Sterilisation room. After meticulous inspection, instruments are wrapped and sterilised in vacuum autoclaves. The vacuum function in autoclaves allows deeper sterilisation of the contents. It completely evacuates the ambient air within, allowing high-temperature steam to penetrate and sterilise areas that would generally be occupied by ambient air, and can be more efficient at sterilising items with hard-to-reach areas.

Proper autoclave treatment will inactivate all resistant bacterial spores in addition to fungi, bacteria, and viruses.

Sterile instruments are stored within wrapping, which means that they are opened separately for each patient in the surgery. In this way, you can be assured that the instruments we are using for you are sterilised.

Moreover, after each patient, our surgeries are cleaned and wiped with anti-fungi, anti- bacteria and anti-virus disinfectants.
