Infection Prevention & Instrument Sterilization at Georgian Dental®
Our Patient’s best interest first and foremost, govern all our decisions and actions.
At Georgian Dental® our passion is to nurture and uplift the human spirit with holistic dentistry for whole body health. A big part of that mission is always acting on decisions that place our patient’s best interest at the forefront, ahead of everything else. The health and safety of our friend and families is of utmost importance to The Professionals at Georgian Dental®.
To that end, we accede to our Governing Organizations to define the protocols that will help ensure the health and safety of our patients, the Georgian Dental® Professionals and our families. The Governing Organizations that guide us are: The Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit (SMDHU), The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO), The College of Dental Hygienist of Ontario (CDHO) and the Ontario Dental Association (ODA). All dentists in Ontario look to these governing bodies to provide clear, precise, realistic and consistent standards on Infection Prevention and Control in the Dental Clinic environment.
The Professionals at Georgian Dental® are constantly training, servicing and upgrading our equipment and always looking for better and safer products for our patients and our Professionals. For example, we are constantly improving our Georgian Dental® Sterilization Quality Assurance Directives (SQuAD) to meet and exceed the standards set forth by those Governing Organizations. To ensure complete sterilization of all our dental instruments SQuAD, employs daily biological spore testing, chemical indicator packs to ensure optimal sterilization temperatures are reached, chemical indicator strips in every single sterilization pack, used in every sterilization cycle, and our unique Sterilized Instrument Tracking System that enables us to pinpoint the precise day and sterilization cycle run for every single instrument, that was used on every single patient. Cross contamination hazards are a very serious and potentially life-threatening matter that we will not tolerate, and we will continue to do our utmost to ensure that our patients can continue to put their trust in the Professionals at Georgian Dental®.
