Patients trust you to provide a safe space for them to have their dental work. Clean reception areas, spotless bathrooms, tidy offices, and sanitized treatment areas are all must-haves to keep your patients and staff healthy and comfortable.
In this article, we’ll explain the importance of each area and how to keep it clean and sanitary.
Maintain A Beautiful Entrance & Reception Area
The entranceways and reception areas are where your patients get their first impressions about your practice. They spend a lot of undistracted time here, giving them plenty of opportunities to scrutinize the cleanliness of these areas.
A clean waiting area conveys to your customers that you care about providing a hygienic and safe atmosphere.
These areas can be a breeding ground for germs, bacteria, and viruses and require regular cleaning and maintenance. Focus on cleaning the windows, blinds, picture frames, shelves, and all other surfaces. Don’t forget to clean the furniture and upholstery, the outside mats and door frames, and clear the area of any obstacles or tripping hazards.
Ensure A Clean & Disinfected Patient Treatment Area
Your staff should be focusing on treating their patients, not spending hours cleaning their treatment areas. Hiring a professional cleaning company saves you both time and money. With patients opening mouths and exposing wounds for a large amount of time, this area needs to achieve the highest level of disinfection and sanitization to ensure patient safety.
In these areas, being thorough and attention to detail is essential. From sanitizing every piece of equipment and dentist chair to cleaning floors, cabinets, countertops, and windows, every element needs to be thoroughly disinfected.
The treatment room is where your patients spend most of their time. Ensure they feel comfortable and relaxed with a clean and hygienic environment.
Dust & Declutter Offices & Breakrooms
Your patients may not see your offices and breakrooms as often as other areas, but keeping these areas clean and tidy is also important.
Clean staff environments reduce the number of staff sick days, improve workplace morale and work ethic. A dusted, and sanitary office and breakroom space also reduce the risk of a staff member transferring bacteria and viruses from these areas to your patients.
Try to keep your desk de-cluttered, and employ the help of professionals to regularly clean and dust windows, desks, counters, tables, chairs, sinks, and cabinets.
Get Sparkling Clean Restrooms
The restroom by nature is a dirty place. It’s also a place that gets noticed when dirty. Dirty sinks, toilets, floors, all become health hazards as well as eye sores. Door knobs, light switches, and sink taps are all heavily touched and harbor a lot of bacteria and germs.
Professional cleaning service not only wipes off these areas but understands how to keep these areas up to Canada Health sanitation guidelines and standards.
Tips For General Maintenance
Whether you do it yourself or hire a professional janitorial service, keeping your dental practice clean is important for you, your staff, and your patients.
With office cleaning or any other commercial cleaning environment, the size of your space matters. Cleaning schedules need to account for the size, layout, and working hours of your practice. In an environment such as yours, regular and consistent cleaning needs to occur throughout the day, as well as having daily deep cleanings.
