Standards for Dental Clinics

There are currently no standards for dental clinics in India. Kolkata as a city has 10,000 dentists but only 50 have the equipment to sterlise instruments after they are used in a patients mouth.

The other 9500 of them are basically either not sterlisiing and passing bacterias or they are just putting in hot water at 50-60 degree C and using on next patient. Sterlisation happens at 120 degrees. For all u know dentists are the ones passing swine flu or bacterial infection from one to other.

So its critical that BIS has standards for dental clinics and it must be such that mandatory standards are needed before a dental clinic license is given.

Dear Madam Aradhana Bose,

This has reference to your e-mail dated 14th November, 2019 on the subject cited above.

Indeed sterilization of instruments is of paramount importance for all clinics especially dental clinics.

Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS)- the National Standards Body of India has already published an Indian Standard (IS: 15904: 2010) entitled “Guidelines for Single Doctor Clinic including a Dental Clinic” which is for voluntary use in this regards.
Under IS 15904, the clause 4.3.1 states that ‘Facilities for complete and comprehensive sterilization should be available in the clinic with modern methods of sterilization like autoclave/hot air oven/electrical sterilization and chemical sterilization’.

The standards published by the Bureau of Indian Standards, are available for e-sale at BIS sales portal http://www.standardsbis.in. The customers have the various modes of purchasing standards:
i) Through BIS portal http://www.standardsbis.in, the customer can download soft copy or place order for DVD or for printed copy on the portal.
ii) For ordering Printed Copies, Postal & Packing Charges and Processing charges at 5% of the value of the transaction effected through the portal will also be applicable.

With kind regards
Dr Pradeep Dua

There should be standards/professional ethics for all professions
like CAs, Docts., Advocates, Teachers, Engrs. etc. for the benefit
of common man. The rot is continuing in every field doe to grey and
out dated laws. All law books and laws must be re-written/amended to suit the present day requirement of Indian society. more  
Good suggestion, mandatory standards be implemented before a dental clinic license is given. more  
Making a standard by BIS will not serve the intended purpose. If BIS issues BIS certification mark against the sterilization process after proper verification may be effective more  
What government can do, it's on the merit better doctor, will get more patients more
