Safety Procedures

The majority of patients when asked about infection control in a survey thought that the practice they went to was ok because the dentist wore gloves, masks and had eye protection. Practicing good infection control are more than just these simple measures. A lot of what we do in infection control occurs before and after you leave the surgery. It also includes education, safe work practices and quality assurance.

At Apex we support the National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) guidelines of Universal precautions. In principle we treat all our patients as if they have infectious disease. There are many people in the community who feel healthy and well, yet may have unknown bacterial or viral infections within. By treating everyone the same, we provide the highest level of protection for all our staff and patients.
