• The level of cleanliness and hygiene in all procedures gave me added confidence.

Sterilisation Centre

Cleanliness and hygiene really matter to people when they visit their dental practice. It really matters to us.

The Department of Health set minimum and best practice hygiene standards for all dentists to adhere to, Best Practice is the target we strive for at Arden House Dental. Our Sterilisation Centre means that we no longer have to clean and sterilise equipment in the dental surgery at the same time as treating you. You should expect nothing less.

We pride ourselves on our high standards and have invested heavily in our custom designed sterilisation centre where the management of clean and dirty instruments is tightly controlled. The centre includes a specially designed instrument storage facility (so clean instruments are not stored in the surgery), automated cleaning equipment so we don’t have to clean instruments by hand, and top of the range sterilisers.

Niki our compliance co-ordinator, ensures regular tests, checks and audits are undertaken to make sure all our equipment is performing correctly. Niki has also qualified with a BTEC Level 3 Advanced Certificate in Decontamination and Infection Control Lead, one of the few nurses in the U.K. to achieve this, supporting our excellent standards.

The team is trained in all aspects of cross infection control including hand hygiene, waste disposal and instrument transportation. Because we care about the safety of our staff and patients we insist on the use of gloves, masks, protective aprons and eye protectors.

We call ourselves a centre for excellence because we believe we are. If you have any questions about what we do, please ask Ian or any member of the nursing team.
