Pete “DeconPete” Gibbons joins Mike on this weeks podcast episode to talk all about infection prevention and control.

DeconPete gives a great explanation of what infection prevention and control is, and why it’s so important within a dental practice.

He describes the challenges facing dental teams when implementing infection protection measures, before discussing upcoming changes to regulations which many practices are not ready for.

Pete describes what a new squat practice needs to do in order to pass a first CQC inspection. This includes a detailed walkthrough of an ideal local decontamination unit (LDU) including rough investment cost.

Finally, DeconPete explains the steps any new Principal should take as soon as they get the keys to their new practice; from auditing what’s already happening to getting existing staff trained up.

Pete is super passionate about helping dental practices navigate the sometimes misunderstood world of infection prevention and control, and you can hear that is the way he speaks. He also has an incredible knack for explaining complex things in layman’s terms.
