At the Healthy Smile Centre, we take hygiene and quality incredibly seriously. We don’t believe in cutting corners on this, as our patients are our number one priority. Our philosophy is, if it’s not going in our mouths, it’s not going in yours! There are several ways in which we make sure we can deliver this.
Our dentist in Erskineville sources equipment from established manufacturers in Europe, the USA or South East Asia. We don’t go for cut price deals from fly-by-night start-ups.
We use local, experienced technicians to make most of our prosthetics and dental appliances. We create our CEREC same-day crowns in-house, and otherwise use Australian-based laboratories. The only exception is a lab we use in Canada for teeth-straightening appliances, because it is one of the best in the world. We don’t outsource to labs in Asia as many Australian dentists do, because we know that hygiene standards and infection control is minimal in such places. We want to know that whatever we fit into our patients’ mouths isn’t going to cause them an issue and is built to last.
Keeping it clean
We make sure our own infection control is up to scratch too, by using the premium Melag class B autoclave. This is the highest level of sterilisation recommended for dental practices.
Investigation and education
We also do our own research into dental products to see which will be suitable for which patient. Everyone has a different brushing action, for example, which is why we have tested 90 toothbrushes to make sure we can advise you on the optimum product for you.
And the other way we make sure we maintain our high standards of care is by educating ourselves. Our dentists get through three years of recommended professional development in 6-9 months, so we can stay up-to-date with the latest techniques and technology.
