New Onsite Infection Control Reviews

ADA NSW is now offering Onsite Infection Control Reviews exclusively for members. Reviews include a meaningful report about your infection control processes, identification of gaps and provision of achievable quality improvement strategies tailored to the practice as an approach to close any identified gaps.

Onsite Infection Control Reviews are designed to give members confidence with their infection control processes in their practice. 


The onsite review takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete, with a subsequent peer reviewed report and Quality Improvement Plan issued to the practice about three weeks later. 

The review will be conducted in a systematic, logical, and structured way to ensure all infection control risks are assessed in a practice. The review is not assessing who is to blame or what individuals are not doing the right thing. The review looks at what constructive feedback and ideas could apply to the Infection Control systems of the practice to:

  • Improve performance and efficiency
  • Reduce risk for patients, the team, and the business
  • Provide confidence that processes are compliant
  • Close gaps
  • Build a culture of quality

Reviews are conducted by Kylie Robb, ADA NSW’s Infection Control Consultant. Kylie is friendly and approachable and utilises her 15 years’ experience to provide straight forward strategies for practices to implement so they can be confident their infection control processes are best practice.

Through accreditation, Kylie has worked with more than 500 hundreds dental practices supporting them to simplify systems and processes that comply with the vast number of Standards, guidelines and regulatory requirements. Kylie was formally recognised as a 2015 HESTA Primary Health Care ‘Young Leader’ Award finalist for this work.

This is a new member service new price for reviews is $869 ($790 + GST).

"Our practice is an older, well established practice and so we have had to work hard to keep up with the changes of requirements and keeping up to the standards of infection control but we still were not sure if there was anything we were missing. We recently had to purchase a replacement autoclave for one of our older units and found a few changes needed to be made to accommodate the new way of recording and tracking instruments. We were overwhelmed by some of the new information we were hearing from a few different sources regarding tracking of instruments so I contacted the ADA for some assistance. By chance, on the day of our inquiry, the ADA started a new in house training option so the timing couldn’t have been better. I was able to speak to Kylie over the phone and straight away felt comfortable with her and her guidance on the topic. We took up the option for her to come in for a training day the following week.

We were a little apprehensive on what to expect and the amount of changes or paperwork we would have to go through but as soon as we met Kylie our whole team felt much more at ease. Kylie was very pleasant, approachable and helpful. She was very positive and even when she found gaps that needed improvement she made sure to tailor them to our practice and simplified them for ease of implementation in our practice. All our team felt very positive after Kylie’s visit and we would strongly recommend that every surgery that are serious about infection control should take up this training option. I am very grateful to the ADA for all their hard work recently on many levels and this training option is a strong indication of how well they are trying to work for their members. Kylie was the perfect choice to run this training and our team looks forward to working with her again in the near future."
