We know that a lot of people have worries about coming to the dentist. We at StoneRock make it our business to try and ease these worries as much as possible. Once worry we think we can completely free you from is the concern about whether the equipment we use is clean.
Cross infection control is the term we use to describe all of the processes that we employ to make sure that every bit of clinical equipment that we use is absolutely safe. Dr Kerr has one golden rule that he uses to check if we are happy with our procedures. Would he be happy to use this equipment if the next patient in the chair was one of his children? If the answer is no then the equipment is discarded and the procedure is changed, it’s that simple.
But what about the future, what about the next virus that comes along, how do we know that our measure are protecting all of us from them? When we look back over just the past twenty years we see that just when we think we are safe, nature has another trick up it’s sleeve. Hepatitis C, HIV, vCJD, and now MRSA, the list keeps growing. It seems that the only lesson we can learn from the past is that we can’t predict the future. The only way we can hope to combat the new challenges of the future is to stay ahead of the game now and with this in mind we at StoneRock endevaur to exceed all current cross infection control requirements. To allow us to do this we have invested in the highest level of sterilisation equipment available and use disposable materials whenever it is appropriate to do so. All of the cross infection procedures take time to implement so each appointment has time allowed with in it for the StoneRock team to prepare your clinical area and clean it up again after we have finished. If someone else is telling you they can do the work quicker and cheaper than us then perhaps you should ask yourself, where are they cutting corners?
