Smartdentist was designed around infection control
What do you need to comply with legal requirements for infection control?
You and your staff need to be "doing" infection control correctly in your practice
Your practice needs to be complying with the Dental Board of Australia (DBA) Infection control documentation requirements
Around Australia dental practices need to be aware that other regulatory bodies take an interest in Dental practice compliance. This includes the Queensland Health Department and the Dental Council of NSW.
Subscribers will find a large quantity of practical advise in Smartdentist. This is both in the form of templated policies and procedures that are completed as if the practice need to use them straight away. Practical training is also included in our Training library and this works particularly well as a focus for staff meeting discussions.
Subscribers can also ring and discuss individual questions because it is never easy to work through the complexities of various opinions. Subscribers find this particularly useful when a new staff member brings in a new idea and presents it as if it is a legal requirement.
