At The Rawson Dentist, we treat infection control and your safety very seriously. Our dental sterilisation is purpose built, and is staffed with an appropriately trained steri nurse. All reusable instruments are cleaned and then sterilised in accordance with current Australian Standards and short cuts are never taken. Our bench top sterilisers and associated equipment are TGA approved and are tested, calibrated and maintained by fully qualified service personnel on a regular base. Each sterilisation cycle is monitored to ensure that dental sterilisation parameters are met. All critical instruments are individually wrapped or packed (including dental handpieces), maintaining sterility until the package is opened for use on a specific patient. No item is released for use until it has been checked for the integrity of its outer wrap, seals, labelling, and colour of the chemical indicator.
Most importantly, we can track each item that has been used for a patient, when it has been sterilised and bring up all the details of the sterilisation batch is at any given point.
