How to Use Handsanitiser

The World Health Organisation (WHO) technique for how to use handsanitiser. Correct and thorough application of handsanitiser (made of at least 60% alcohol) will ensure its effectiveness in sanitising your hands. Our team at Melbourne Dentistry practice the WHO handwashing and handsanitizing routine throughout the day.


The steps for handsanitiser application are the same as the sequence used for theĀ  WHO handwashing routine.

Please apply hand sanitiser on arrival to our dental practice.

We will also ask you to apply it again upon completion of your dental visit. This hand hygiene step is particularly important. Handsanitizing before you return at our reception desk to finalise your visit will help protect our team and other patients if you have touched your face and mouth during your dental treatment.
