What do we wear to help prevent the spread of infection within Windmill Dental Care?
Windmill Dental Care will always make it our priority to put the safety and care of our patients and staff at the heart of our business. One way we do this is to make sure all our staff are trained and provided with the correct Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). So what do we wear?
Patients are asked to wear eye protection (glasses) prior to any examination or treatment and may also have a protective bib in place to cover their clothing
Dental Staff Protection:
Eyes: we wear glasses or visors during treatments and when cleaning instruments which will stop liquids and materials spraying in our eyes
Hands: sterile single use gloves are worn which are put on at the start of treatment and removed at the end
Face: we wear visors to help protect splatter on our faces. We also may wear protective face masks
