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.



Positive: caring, knowledgeable and extremely helpful

I have been a patient at Alpha House for a number of years now and the switch to this practice has been the best thing I have done regarding my teeth. The service and treatment I have received has been second to none. Everyone from the Dentists, Specialists, Hygienists, Dental Nurses and Reception Staff are all caring, knowledgeable and extremely helpful. I now have no hesitation in going to the Dentist, where as previously I always felt anxious about going. I feel comfortable attending and am reassured every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Alpha House to anyone who like me gets anxious about attending the Dentist.
