Excellent hygiene is second nature to dental practices, and at Ringley Park, Reigate we pride ourselves on our very stringent cleaning and disinfection processes, which keep our environment safe for our patients and staff.
Concerns about hygiene in all areas of life have become particularly significant this year and we’d like to reassure you that our aim is to keep the risk of disease transmission at its absolute lowest.
When it comes to taking impressions of your teeth, we use digital technology, to make the procedure as swift and hygienic as possible.
What are digital impressions?
When we’re planning treatments or even diagnosing the exact cause of a dental issue, we may need to take an impression of your teeth.
