THE DENTALWIZE PLEDGE
HEALTH AND SAFETY FIRST – ALWAYS
As the country reels from the effects of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to set your mind at ease – our commitment has always been to our patients’ health and safety first.
We’re the dentists who care and have taken this very seriously (as seriously as we take your dental health). While it’s business as usual at DentalWize, we have taken additional precautions to ensure our facilities are safe – there’s no compromise on health.
As a medical practice, we have always focussed on sanitising and sterilising our premises, equipment and waiting areas. We’ve also implemented additional safety measures:
Our dentists wear high quality PPE (gloves, masks, etc.) and will use hand sanitisers and wash their hands regularly
Hand sanitisers have been dispensed to all practices, for staff and patients
Instruments are sterilised triple fold:
- Scrubbed in an enzymatic solution
- Put through cold sterilisation
- High pressure and heat sterilisation in an autoclave machine
All surfaces are treated after each patient with a high-level disinfectant; proven effective against the total family of viruses to which the Coronavirus belongs (among others)
These measures have always served us well. For the past decade that we’ve been in operation, no incidents of infection have occurred.
We’d encourage you to keep your appointments, and maintain good dental health – after all, you’re probably safer in our scrubbed down rooms.
Please only postpone appointments, if you’ve:
- Recently travelled/been in contact with someone who has travelled to high risk areas
- Been in contact with someone who is exhibiting flu like symptoms
- Shown any symptoms yourself
