General Dentistry: Infection and Comfort
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.
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.
We appreciate that some patients may be apprehensive about treatment. We provide the following to make your dental experience a pleasant one:
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.
During treatment or teeth whitening, sit back, relax and enjoy our selection of movies.
For your listening pleasure and comfort, we also provide wireless headsets.
Please feel free to help yourself at our beverage corner.
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.
Keep warm with our flannel blankets should you feel cold during treatments.
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.
