Don't let your practice reach the news for the wrong reasons

A recent news piece has revealed that over 500 patients have been recommended to get tests for HIV and other bloodborne diseases following the use of unclean equipment at a dental practice in Hertfordshire.

As well as being a scary time for these patients, this once again highlights the importance of proper infection control in dental practices. Make sure you're compliant and are protecting your patients from these risks by using a trusted autoclave such as the Little Sister SES 2020N from Eschmann.


Able to accommodate five full size instrument trays and perform rapid cycles with active drying, the autoclave is fully geared towards the needs of the modern professional.

For more information on the highly effective and affordable range of decontamination equipment and products from Eschmann, please visit, follow on Twitter at @LittleSisterSES or call 01903 753322.
