What is Dental Practice Cleaning

What is Dental Practice Cleaning?

Dental practice cleaning is a crucial aspect of maintaining a sterile and safe environment in oral healthcare facilities. This comprehensive process involves the thorough cleaning, disinfection, and sterilisation of surfaces, instruments, and equipment to ensure the highest standard of hygiene and patient safety. By adhering to stringent guidelines, dental practices can minimise the risk of cross-contamination and infection while enhancing patient satisfaction and trust.

  1. Surface cleaning and disinfection: Regularly cleaning and disinfecting high-touch surfaces, such as door handles, countertops, and chairs, is crucial for minimising the spread of germs and viruses.
  2. Instrument sterilisation: Dental instruments must be meticulously cleaned, disinfected, and sterilised according to industry standards to ensure patient safety and prevent infection transmission.
  3. Equipment maintenance: Routine cleaning and maintenance of dental equipment, such as dental chairs, X-ray machines, and autoclaves, can prolong their lifespan and help maintain a safe and functional working environment.
  4. Waste disposal: Proper disposal of bio-hazardous waste and sharp objects is necessary for protecting staff, patients, and the environment from potential harm.

How Can Dental Practices Benefit from Cleaning?

  1. Reduction of cross-contamination and infection transmission – According to the CDC, regular cleaning and disinfection of dental practices can help minimise cross-contamination and the spread of infections between patients and dental healthcare workers. High-touch surfaces like door handles, chairs, and countertops should be disinfected frequently.
  2. Maintaining a healthy working environment: Proper cleaning practices contribute to a healthier working environment for dental professionals, which may improve productivity and job satisfaction.
  3. Enhancing patient trust and satisfaction:  As an article in British Dental Journal (BDA) notes, a clean and well-maintained dental practice can positively influence patients’ perceptions of the care they receive, which may lead to increased trust, satisfaction, and patient retention. 
  4. Compliance with regulations and guidelines: Regular cleaning and maintenance of dental practices is essential to comply with infection control guidelines and regulations, such as those set by the CDC and OSHA, ensuring the practice operates safely and legally. 
  5. Prolonging the lifespan of dental equipment: According to the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA), regular cleaning and maintenance of dental equipment can help extend the lifespan of that equipment, reducing the need for costly repairs or replacements.

Operating Dental Surgeries Under Strict Guidance

Operating dental surgeries under strict guidance is essential to maintain a safe and hygienic environment for both the dental practitioners and their patients. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of maintaining high levels of cleanliness and sterilisation in dental practices to prevent the spread of the virus. Since then we’ve continued to adhere to strict guidelines.

We strong encourage the use of a cleaning schedule for dental practices, which should includes regular cleaning and disinfection of high touch surfaces such as door handles, light switches, chairs, and dental equipment. Dental practices should also implement a protocol for cleaning and disinfecting the treatment rooms between appointments, including wiping down surfaces and sterilising equipment.

Outsourcing cleaning services to a professional dentist cleaning service like CICS can be highly beneficial for dental practices. We offer trained and experienced cleaning staff who understand the unique challenges of maintaining a clean and hygienic environment within a dental practice. Our team follow a comprehensive cleaning schedule, use the right cleaning supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE), maintain accurate records of cleaning and sterilisation procedures, and provide peace of mind to dental practitioners and patients. With dental practices doing everything possible to protect the health and safety of their staff and patients, CICS are trustworthy cleaning partner.

1. Following CQC Guidelines

Nothing less than perfection will do when it comes to dental practice cleaning. Strict procedures and regulations must be followed and adhered to, just like in doctor surgery and other healthcare cleaning activities. Do you have the skills necessary to keep a dentist office spotless? Your dental practice’s quality of cleanliness and the well-being of your employees, patients, and other visitors will be considerably improved by implementing a thorough cleaning policy and following a well-defined work plan.

Dental practises that fail to maintain high standards of cleanliness risk losing patients, exposing themselves to the danger of infection, and potentially failing an inspection from the Care Quality Commission (CQC). As a result, cleaning techniques must be thorough, well-organised, and constantly adhered to.

Dentists who fail to uphold proper standards of cleanliness and personal hygiene may face the possibility of their practices being closed, their employees being suspended, and their dental practise receiving bad press. It is now more critical than ever to know how to properly clean a dental practise.

For many years, CICS has been providing healthcare facilities with a full compliance cleaning service. CQC inspections are never a problem for us and we never disappoint our clients. At CICS our cleaning staff operate with the utmost care and professionalism. All staff are ISSA, GBAC Star and ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 certified. This means we are aware of the occupational health and safety standards and ensure that utmost caution is taken when disinfecting and decontaminating premises to a microbial level.

 

2. ATP Testing and ULV Fogging

Having the right methodology to clean a dental surgery can help speed up the process and ensure more patients are able to be seen. Ultimately this means more profits for your dental surgery, but not at the cost of patient safety. We use ULV Fogging and clean surgeries to an ISSA GBAC Star standard. Our cleaning methodology also includes the correct chemicals and training to apply those chemicals. All our cleaning technicians are GBAC microbial trained.

What exactly is ATP testing? Living cells contain the molecule ATP, which can be used to determine the level of concentration and overall health of those cells. A luminometer is used to measure the light emitted by ATP’s reaction with the naturally occurring firefly enzyme luciferase in order to determine its exact concentration. The amount of ATP in the sample has a direct correlation to the amount of light produced.
 
Ultra Low Volume (ULV) Fogging is the use of devices that spray a thin mist of disinfection across all surfaces. Because the mist is blasted out under pressure, the disinfectant may cover a large area and reach locations that are difficult to access.

With GBAC STAR, your organisation can show to customers, employees, and key stakeholders that it is dedicated to minimising risks connected with infectious agents.

4. ISO Quality Care and Professionalism

ISO 9001 has been adopted by over 1 million organisations across the world and is used by businesses to continually monitor, manage and improve the quality of their products and services. Every business is faced with the challenge of meeting health and safety obligations and OHSAS 18001 ( ISO 45001) ensures your dentistry practice has the appropriate techniques in place to identify risks and make health and safety a priority. CICS Ltd are also fully compliant with ISO 14001 and our staff are trained to be aware of environmental considerations in all the work they carry out.
