Infection Control Guidelines - A Top Priority
We participate in continuing education regularly to bring you the latest, safest treatments. This is keeping with our belief in educating our patients on proper prevention methods. Billings Bridge Dental Care follows the standards and guidelines put in place by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario as well as the recommendations of manufacturers for sterilization of our dental office and equipment to ensure patient safety (RCDSO, 2018).

The maintenance of a safe, clean and hygienic environment, and minimization of microbial contamination in the healthcare environment is increasingly recognized as a key approach for reducing the risk of infection for all patients, visitors and healthcare workers.
To ensure your safety, we request that patients notify our staff if any pre-existing medical conditions. In addition, the reception area offers alcohol-based hand rub and masks.
