[nosdivra neimad] - So 'potentially exposed' Stop talking up the story and lay the facts out in black and white. How many people have actually been infected?
[ecraep yecats] - It's the nurses that clean the instruments used by the dentists so you can't just blame the dentists.i used to be a dental nurse in North Sydney and CBD. I would never cut corners when it came to cleaning instruments. We had set procedures in place to make sure everything that had to be sterilised , was done correctly. It's not that hard to do and I don't understand how these nurses could cut corners on such an important part of the job. I feel sorry for the people who have HIV because of someone being to lazy to do their job correctly.
[zg adnama] - Wow. If I wasn't terrified of dentist enough I bloody well am now.
[mme t iav] - Its not all up to government. They bloody make enough money to ensure their utensils are cleaned properly. :-/

[anilorac notsnhoj] - OMG,that's why I don't go the dentist,
[draw leinad] - Stephen Ward goodluck at the dentist
[namtaep eirrehs] - I'm a dental nurse and the practice I work at has very high standards for hygiene. I have friends who work have worked for agencies at others surgeries and their standards are quiet shocking.
When first starting in the industry you are normally trained by the dentist or a qualified dental assistant. The way this person shows new assistants how the procedure of sterilisation is done will determine whether or not proper procedure is done. It's sad to say some dentists and qualified assistants are just not teaching new workers the correct way to sterilise instruments.
