Your safety, health & wellbeing is our priority…

At Elstead Dental Surgery your safety, health and wellbeing is our priority. In order to maintain the highest standard of patient protection, cleanliness and sterilisation, we comply with or exceed British Dental Association guidelines in Decontamination and Infection Control as well as with the latest national cross infection regulation HTM 01-05.

We use disposable treatment items whenever possible and follow strict guidelines and procedures in instrument sterilisation and infection control.

To comply with the guidelines of General Dental Council, all members of our clinical staff undergo regular training in medical emergencies, radiation protection, decontamination and infection control as well as safeguarding children and adults at risk. Elstead Dental Surgery also has a automated external defibrillator (AED) on site and we have regular training in house to ensure you are in safe hands.

In order to reduce radiation exposure to our patients, we have invested in a state of the art digital x-ray system. We follow the guidance of Royal College of Surgeons (RCS ENG) to determine how often you need radiographs taken.

Everyone who works at Elstead Dental Surgery has a legal duty to keep information about you confidential. You can read more about How we use your dental records
