Cleanliness Champion

At L&H Dentalcare you can rest assured that your treatments are carried out in a safe and clean environment. Ensuring that all instruments and work spaces are rigorously cleaned is central to our commitment to cleanliness.

The practice has appointed a ‘cleanliness champion’ whose role is to attend courses and educate the team with the most up to date Infection Control advice. By making sure we are following all of the policies and guidelines we can deliver the best standards for patients.

In 2003 we were the first practice in Scotland to get a washer disinfector, an automated machine to clean instruments. In 2006 we built an LDU, Local Decontamination Unit.

The LDU is a state-of-the-art central sterilisation room for cleaning and sterilising our instruments. Have a look in the glass door on your way to visit the hygienist and you’ll see how it works.
