We are pleased to announce that we have been granted planning approval for a small building extension at the rear of the Practice to house a 'state of the art' Decontamination Suite.
Although the building is only 13 years old, things never stand still in dentistry, and recent Department of Health guidelines are ever more demanding. We comfortably comply with their Essential Quality Requirements but are striving to meet Best Standards and therefore need a dedicated area to reprocess instruments and equipment between patients.
We do have certain reservations as the process makes the surgery more and more like an operating theatre, but we will keep things as relaxed and friendly as we possibly can.
You can view the plans in an earlier News item, and we are hoping to start building in the first couple of months of 2013.
