Swedish Dental’s measures to minimize the spread of infection
Patients who are not healthy or residing in a risk area are asked to re-book their time.
All patients are asked if they have been at risk of infection and if they feel healthy before entering the waiting room clinic.
We measure the body temperature of all employees, patients and visitors before entering the clinic. We measure your body temperature on your forehead and it takes a few seconds. This is done to ensure that everyone staying at the clinic is healthy. If you have a body temperature below 38C and are healthy / not living in a risk area, you are welcome. At temperatures above 38C / staying in the danger area / ill (even mild symptoms), you are encouraged to go home.
All our employees have been informed and instructed about the current situation and extra procedures to minimize the spread of infection.
- We carry out regular disinfection of surfaces such as door handles, reception counters, card terminals and water taps.
- We do not shake your hand to welcome you during this period. We say Hi! or Welcome! instead.
- Hand decinfection is available for all who visit us and we urge all patients and visitors to wash their hands before and after the visit with us.
We work with infection prevention daily
Swedish Dental works according to the national guidelines for hygiene in Swedish dental care, in order not to spread infection during treatment. We follow ”basic hygiene practices”.
This means, for example, that during treatment we use, gloves, disposable protective apron, mouthguard, visor / goggles. We follow quality assured guidelines for hand hygiene. All surfaces in the treatment room as well as the treatment chair are disinfected with alcohol-based surface disinfectant after each patient visit. All instruments used in a treatment are removed from the treatment room and cleaned in validated washer-disinfector and / or in equipment that sterilizes the instruments. We check our equipment on a daily basis to ensure the cleaning processes.
