Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is an element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Davies, Dr. Selvaraj or Dr. Ravichandran and receive a straightforward answer.

Drs. Davies, Selvaraj and Ravichandran, and our entire team follow procedures recommended by the Dental Board of Australian and Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection.

These measures include:

  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Gloves and face masks
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilisation of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

We sterilise all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
