Presenting a clean and sanitary work environment is key no matter the industry. But this is all the more paramount when working in a dental clinic. What’s more, a pristine office is a huge factor in landing new patients and encourages current customers to remain loyal.
Your dental office must exude a clean environment. This is a non-negotiable if you want your dental practice to thrive. The team at Crown Inc. Commercial Cleaning put together this piece to discuss ways in which you can keep your dental office looking immaculate and safe.
Comply with Industry Guidelines
There are published disinfection regulations for dental practices. You must ensure that these guidelines are posted and easily seen in the office.
Furthermore, those in charge of disinfecting dental instruments must go through an orientation to ensure they adhere to The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) dental disinfection procedures.
Create a Comfortable Waiting Area
Your dental office's waiting area must always be clean. You should follow a regular cleaning schedule. Because this tends to be a high-traffic area you want to ensure that it remains clean and sanitized.
Pay attention to the carpets, furniture, and drapes. They must be dust-free and unstained. Take time to dust off the tables, decorations, and shelves periodically. Strive to make the reception clutter-free.
Ensure that Surfaces are Routinely Disinfected
High contact surfaces include doorknobs, exam stations, drawer or cabinet handles, light switches, and faucets. Given that these areas are frequent touchpoints in a clinic, contamination is expected.
If cleaning and disinfecting of these surfaces are not up to industry standards, bacteria can thrive and multiply. To ensure a clean surface, one can either place a removable barrier that can be pulled out and replaced when a new patient comes in.
This is still insufficient though and a disinfection practice is still required alongside regular cleaning. It’s recommended to use an EPA-registered disinfectant for daily surface cleaning. It’s also good to practice wiping dental chairs and dental accessories with disinfectants once a patient leaves.
It might take a lot of effort to dust but it’s essential to keep your dental office free from allergens. Not only is the presence of dust an eyesore, but it’s also an allergen that can cause coughing and sneezing.
Clean and Disinfect the Bathrooms
Designate a person to conduct a regular inspection and cleaning of the bathroom. When your bathroom’s toilet or sink is unclean, your clients will feel less comfortable coming back to your clinic. It could also lead them to think that you compromise on your dental cleanliness standards as well.
