Here in Alberta, infection prevention and control in dentistry is governed by specific guidelines. Most of these guidelines are common sense. As a rule, anything a dentist uses in the mouth is sterilised or single-use disposable. You may be interested to know of some of the measures that dental clinics take to protect both our clients and our staff from disease transmission:
Our new clinic was inspected by the Alberta Dental Association & College shortly after opening. We also recently arranged to have an infection control consultant review our clinic protocols.
If you ever have any questions about infection control, please don’t hesitate to ask. We are proud of our protocols in this area, and will gladly provide you with a tour and demonstration of our sterilisation centre.
