With the outbreak of COVID-19, dental practices across the country are implementing strict safety protocols that aim to protect both patients and dental team members. At Dentistry by Brand, we are more serious than ever about ensuring that we work in a safe, clean, and healthful environment. One of the tools we use to keep our sanitation and sterilization procedures on-point is the Greenlight Dental Compliance Center from Hu-Friedy.
What Is the Greenlight Dental Compliance Center?
The Greenlight Dental Compliance Center from Hu-Friedy is an online portal that helps dental practices assess how they are doing when it comes to things like infection control and instrument sterilization. Some of its features include:
Prompt updates from the Centers for Disease Control on how dental practices can prevent the spread of illness.
Safety information from state board regulations and OSHA.
Training for dental team members and expert advice on how dentists can comply with sanitation measures.
A program for creating customized, practice-specific infection control protocols.
Benefits of the Greenlight Dental Compliance Center
Our dentists, team members, and patients can all benefit from the Greenlight Dental Compliance Center. Some of the advantages we reap include:
Having quick access to dental sanitation compliance guidelines. Having to check different sources from OSHA, the CDC, and state boards can be time-consuming and makes it easy to miss little details. Thanks to Greenlight, all of that information is conveniently located in one place.
Superior compliance. It may startle patients to learn that many practices are not compliant in their sterilization protocols. That is not because the dentists have bad intentions. In most cases, it is simply because they lack access to necessary information. The Greenlight system helps us to stay compliant at all times.
Staff training. If a member of our team has questions about practice sterilization or sanitation, they can easily access the necessary information and training. They can also review the specific guidelines that our practice has in place to protect patients and prevent the spread of contagions.
A trustworthy source. Dentists have trusted Hu-Friedy for over 110 years. We are confident that the information on the Greenlight platform is accurate, reliable, and complete.
