Sterilization and Infection Control

‘Cleanliness is next to Godliness’ and we at Dr. Turners’ cannot exhort and agree more on this.

All our Dental offices adhere to all the guidelines of ISO 9001:2008 which is the most stringent body governing today. All our dental offices are certified ISO 9001:2008 and accredited with this international body and we adhere to all the European norms on asepsis and sterilization put forward and laid down by this governing body.

Some of the things we do in our dental office to ensure your safety and well being.

Auto clave : (High pressure, high temperature, steam steriliser) is checked by our vigilant team monthly, to ensure proper temperatures and pressures are reached to kill all bacteria and viruses.

All our dental instruments are first cleaned, washed with antiseptic detergents. Then they are sent into vigorous high intensity ultrasonic cycles (BIOSONIC) to ensure complete decontamination. After this they are individually packed into sterile plastic pouches.

These are then transferred in for autoclave sterilisation. This way we have made sure they have remained untouched by human hand.

By following these above steps we maintain the sanctity and safety of our patients.

Disinfectives are run through our water lines every week to keep them absolutely free of contaminants.

All our staff (para dental) wear sterilized aprons before every new patient which is disposed after that appointment
All our dental equipments (digital sensors for x-rays /Curing light tips) have plastic disposal sleeves that are mandatorily disposed after each and every patient.
