Health and Safety
At Chatswood Dental Associates we deliver the highest standards of infection control and safety. During all dental procedures, protective glasses, masks and gowns are worn by dentists and clinical staff. These are designed to protect you against the transmission of diseases and infections.
Anything that goes insides a patient's mouth is either disposed of or sterilized between patients in one of our autoclaves which are monitored regularly using chemical and biological tests.
For your safety, we also use high-tech digital x-ray systems, which reduce the radiation to you by 90% over conventional dental x-ray systems.
X-rays are important because they help us detect conditions that may not be visible in the mouth such as: decay between teeth or under existing fillings, receding bone (due to periodontal disease), infected or abscessed teeth and fractured teeth.
