Infection Control

At Alpha House Dental Practice your health and safety are top of our list of priorities. We use the latest technology and equipment to prevent cross-infection and work to maintain a clean, healthy environment. We abide by national guidelines for infection control and all our members of staff are fully trained in infection control and hygiene.

We understand that patients may be concerned about the spread of infections and illnesses, making it our priority to adhere to the latest guidelines and policies issued by national governing bodies and authorities. Our team meets on a regular basis to discuss infection control protocol and there are stringent processes in place for the safety of our staff and clients.

Gloves and Masks

All members of our clinical team wear disposable gloves and masks when treating patients. A new pair of gloves and a mask are used for the treatment of each individual patient.


We comply with the latest sterilisation guidelines set out by the Department of Health, ensuring the sterilisation of all instruments and disinfection of dental equipment. An autoclave is used to sterilise all dental instruments after each patient's treatment. Instruments are cleaned using chemical disinfectors prior to sterilisation for optimum standards of infection control. Dental equipment unable to be sterilised using an autoclave, such as the dental chair, are disinfected chemically between every patient. All surfaces are wiped down using powerful chemical cleaners.

Waste Disposal

We follow national guidelines for the disposal of waste products, needles and medical supplies, using 'single use' products where possible.



I was absolutely terrified of dentists in general before visiting the Alpha House Dental Practice - I would physically shake with fear. Unfortunately I developed a painful abscess and looked for a local dental surgery to me. All I can say is that I feel so lucky to be a patient of the Alpha House Dental Surgery. Mr Hussain is a wonderful dentist - caring, gentle and understanding.

He understood my fears and did his best to put me at ease. The whole team at Alpha House are excellent, second to none, and all are extremely caring and kind. For anyone with a fear of dentists please go and visit Alpha House to see Mr Hussain and his lovely team. It doesn't feel like any dental surgery I have ever visited before. You really will be in the safest hands. Thank you to you all!
We were most impressed by the way in which you and your team handled every aspect of the job down to keeping our 2 year old son entertained it made the whole thing a pleasurable experience.
