Sterilisation Procedures
All re-usable equipment is sterilised following strict sterilising procedures.
All clinical equipment is hand scrubbed, placed into an ultrasonic machine filled with a special disinfection solution, inspected, individually bagged, steam autoclaved and tracked. Spore cultures and other tests are routinely performed to ensure the autoclaves are working correctly. The autoclave is tested and serviced twice yearly by a certified technician to ensure that it works to Australian standards.

Ceiling TV Monitors

We understand the importance of understanding your dental problems and treatment. To help explain these issues we have installed overhead computer monitors above the dental chairs for patients to routinely see their own intra-oral, extra oral photographs, their computer charting, x-rays and educational material.

Patients have the option to view videos and powerpoint travelogue slide presentations as a distraction while lying in the chair.

Examples of Power Point Travelogues from different parts of the world are shown below:
