Good Sterilization Practice

Good Sterilization Practice

You’re a dentist or an orthodontist; heck, you could even work in a blue chip organisation – but if you don’t sterilize properly, you’re more likely than not, putting your patients or clients’ health at risk.

Bad sterilization practices mean rusty equipment – literally! If you don’t look after your appliances, their lifespan is shortened – costing you more money in the long run and risking your patients’ or clients’ health. Using the right cleaning products, coupled with a good cleaning routine, ensures clean appliances that go further and last longer.

Purified water is one way of sterilizing your appliances. Crystal Medic Purified Water is a high quality, high purity bottled water that is most commonly used in autoclaves, steam sterilizers, critical cleaning, industry and science based organisations. The purified water meets with a host of strict industry standards, as well as having its own in-house and 3rd party checking systems, all to make sure you get the most high quality purified water in the UK and Europe.

Here are a number of ways you can disinfect and sterilize your appliances after rigorous use:

Keep them away from heat. The more heat, chemicals and sterilizing gases you use on your appliances, the shorter their life span. First, carefully disassemble and pre-wash the appliances. This causes any residue left on them to be removed. Ideally, they should be disassembled, washed, dried, and then re-assembled without using any (or many) tools, to preserve the coating of the appliances. Strict attention must be paid to the temperature they are cleaned at, especially plastic appliances. Ideally, do not use temperatures exceeding 45°C or 113°F on plastic products.

Sterile or deionized water, such as the Crystal Medic Purified Water, is recommended for thorough cleaning of many products because of its high purity. Dry each component, also thoroughly, ideally in a warm-air oven, not exceeding temperatures of 45°C or 113°F, especially on plastic items.

Regular cleaning and proper drying of your components minimises the multiplication of bacteria on the appliances, giving them a longer life span and minimising risk to patients’ health.

Sterlisation and Customer Satisfaction

Sterlisation and Customer Satisfaction

When it comes to clients choosing a dental facility, there comes ample choice- I want to talk about why they could choose one practice over another. This applies to those in the private or NHS sector who invest in reliable contractors to provide them with professional services such as autoclaves engineers, tooling supplies, dental water, or purified water. This is only my point of view from someone in the industry having seen it all – visiting and providing di water to hundreds of different setup practices all over the country.

From a clients perspective there are so many different dental surgeries to choose from. How do you choose the right dental surgery for you? Is it a question of prices (both privately and NHS run surgeries)? Or are their certain elements to look for in a good quality, reliable dental surgery?

Just having friendly staff, a great customer service ethic, with nicely decorated rooms is the norm now, however a lot of clients will look deeper into your surgery, particularly those who have previously had bad experiences with unhygienic dental practices. Showing your clients you run up to date and consistent decontamination procedures is something to think about remembering ro water or dental water is only a small part – but key part to the process. Important key issues or attention to detail like these not only make and form impressions with the customer but could be vital for the safety of your clients.

In Summary one way you can separate yourself from the competition is to sell the fact that you have raised the quality of decontamination in your facility by remembering to document and promote your processes like the dental water you use is pure water to a recognised standard. I think when a client knows how seriously you take sterilisation and customer safety they are more comfortable and happy to remain a good customer for years to come.
