Supporting Facilities:

To provide efficient patient services Several supporting units have been established, as follows:

1. Reception and Records: This section is responsible for receiving, registering, and scheduling appointments for patients. Currently, there are 123107 patients on record. Patient data is stored digitally, and their files are kept in an electronic filing system.

2. Sterilization Unit: Installed in this unit is state-of-the-art sterilization equipment of the highest international standards. The sterilization room is fully equipped with an autoclave and plasma sterilization system. This accommodates the vast demands of patient care. Routine operations consider verifiable infection control measures, making sure patients, students, and staff are well protected.

3. Infection Control: Unit The Infection Control Committee monitors the infection control policies in our dental clinic. The infection control unit conducts a random check of clinics for infection control related issues and keeps records. Regular meetings are carried out to see the update and for any corrective actions.

4. Oral Radiology: Unit The oral radiology unit is equipped with a variety of the latest machines, including the following:

  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Unit
  • Digital Panoramic X-ray machines.
  • Analog Panoramic X-ray machine.
  • Machines for intra-oral radiography.
  • Mobile equipment for intraoral radiography.

5. Auxiliary Staff: The university dental hospital has an efficient, well-trained auxiliary staff as follows:

5.1 Dental Assistants: They help in providing efficient dental treatment by preparing the patient with drapes and eye shields. They pass instruments to dentists, and dental students carry out suctioning, for a clear field during clinical procedures. Operators can, therefore, focus more on providing treatment while assistants carry out the necessary but less demanding tasks, effectively becoming the operator's extra hands.

5.2 Dental Laboratory: Technicians The university dental hospital has a dedicated team of dental technicians who, with a written work order, produce dental appliances such as removable prostheses, including dentures, orthodontic appliances, and carry out other services such as denture repairs. Dental technicians manipulate precious metals and ceramics to produce custom-made fixed prostheses using new technologies like CAD/CAM.

5.3 Oral Radiology Technicians: The university dental hospital has efficient radiographers who utilize the latest oral radiography equipment to provide diagnostic tools for treatment planning and patient management.

5.4 Patient Affairs and Dental Reports Staff: This section facilitates communication between operators and patients, as the university dental hospital recognizes the right of patients to demand and obtain a detailed description of their treatment on request. Their services include patient relations, medical records, and arranging appointments with the patient.

5.5 Maintenance: They are responsible for maintaining all equipment, including lab machines, dental units, X-ray units, etc.

5.6 Cleaning and Waste Disposal: Cleaning and waste disposal staff keep all sections of the university dental hospital tidy and clean. Biohazards are taken care of in a standard manner.
