We follow the strictest infection control routines, and all items that are not approved for autoclaving and sterilizing are single use only. In addition, all braces, wires, appliances etc are of course, also single use only and disposed of. Each appointment involves the use of plastic wrap and barriers on all working surfaces that are disposed of prior to the next patient.
Due to the above required use of single use plastics and other materials, we make a concerted effort to recycle and minimise wastage in other areas. We have always used only recycled paper. All our computers, heating/cooling and lighting are switched off when not in use. We also use power saving lighting. We also utilise our own solar electric power.
