General Dentistry: Infection and Comfort

Bookmark and Share

At Orchard Scotts Dental, you are in good hands. Your safety and comfort is our priority. We are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to ensure you have a pleasant dental experience.

Infection Control

Infectious diseases are spread through blood and body fluids like saliva. The first step in adequate infection control is to ensure that patients do not come into contact with someone else’s body fluids. For your safety, all our clinical staff members wear disposable safety masks, gloves and disposable scrub uniforms.

We sterilize all our instruments in an Melag Class B autoclave (steriliser) that exceeds standards recommended by the Ministry of Health. All instruments are either high grade steel or titanium that can tolerate sterilization under high pressure at 134° Celsius.

Comfort

We appreciate that some patients may be apprehensive about treatment. We provide the following to make your dental experience a pleasant one:

Reduced X-Rays

Our digital X-Ray equipment reduces radiation by 75% and we are able to identify problems early and safely, thus reducing treatment cost and time.

Video Goggles

During treatment or teeth whitening, sit back, relax and enjoy our selection of movies.

Wireless headsets

For your listening pleasure and comfort, we also provide wireless headsets.

Beverages

Please feel free to help yourself at our beverage corner.

Neck Pillows

We have special “Tempur” neck pillows to ensure proper neck support during treatment. In addition, our dental chairs with customised padding provide more comfort during long treatments.

Blankets

Keep warm with our flannel blankets should you feel cold during treatments.

Aromatherapy

To help you relax during long procedures please ask for our selection of essential oils. Please let us know if you need anything else to be comfortable. You are welcome to let us know anytime if you need a pause during treatment.
