Benefits of working with us include:
Re-opening Dental Surgeries Under New Conditions
Dentists are faced with a unique challenge in a post-lockdown world. They are not able to social distance and at the same time are expected to achieve a high level of cleanliness and sterilisation. Some of the significant measures taken to prevent COVID-19 contamination include:
- Patient temperature screening – where patient temperatures exceed 37.5 degrees they will be asked to re-book appointments.
- Continuous cleaning – typically equipment cleaning occurs between appointments. However, under new conditions, the treatment room and other key surfaces will need to be cleaned and disinfected on a more regular basis.
- Limiting patient visits – a dentist that typically sees around 20 patients a day will now only be able to see half that amount to allow for cleaning between appointments.
- Staff wearing full PPE – to keep the operating areas as safe and sterile as possible, all support staff will likely need full PPE equipment.
1. CQC Compliance
According to a recent opinion poll, 1 in 3 people are afraid to visit dentists post-lock down. Dentists are hoping that the new measures put in place will help curb the fear or visiting dentist surgeries. Assuring staff and clients that the premises is clean and operating with care and professionalism under the new post-lock down conditions may help here. At CICS our cleaning staff operate with the utmost care and professionalism. All staff are ISSA, GBAC Star and ISO 9001, 14001 and 18001 certified. This means we are aware of the occupational health and safety standards and ensure that utmost caution is taken when disinfecting and decontaminating premises to a microbial level.
2. ATP Testing and ULV Fogging
Having the right methodology to clean a dental surgery can help speed up the process and ensure more patients are able to be seen. Ultimately this means more profits for your dental surgery, but not at the cost of patient safety. We use ULV Fogging and clean surgeries to an ISSA GBAC Star standard. Our cleaning methodology also includes the correct chemicals and training to apply those chemicals. All our cleaning technicians are GBAC microbial trained.

3. What Does ISSA’s GBAC Star Mean For Dental Surgeries?
By working with us your premises automatically gain the GBAC star accreditation. GBAC STAR™ is the gold standard for managing biorisks. It is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation. It communicates to the public and assessors that the proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices have been put in place to combat biohazardous and infectious agents including the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

ISO 9001 has been adopted by over 1 million organisations across the world and is used by businesses to continually monitor, manage and improve the quality of their products and services. Every business is faced with the challenge of meeting health and safety obligations and OHSAS 18001 ( ISO 45001) ensures your dentistry practice has the appropriate techniques in place to identify risks and make health and safety a priority.
