The potential financial, emotional, reputational and physical damages incurred by an infection control breach are huge. With over 76% of all practices failing at compliance audits, this is very concerning as it indicates a large majority are at risk and potentially are not even aware.
Regulatory obligations* state that dental practitioners must practise in a way that maintains and enhances public health and safety by minimising or preventing the risk of the spread of infectious diseases. This includes not just having the procedures in place, but ensuring they are followed in every aspect of your practice.
Our trained professionals will be able to assist with identifying risks and getting your practice set up with all the tools required to ensure your compliance is as it should be.
