Problems with infection control practices were identified at the Essential Dental for Life private dental clinic, following assessments by the Tropical Public Health Unit and the Office of the Health Ombudsman.

& # 39; Although we have no evidence that an infectious or communicable disease has been contracted by patients, it is important that people are tested, & # 39; said the head of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service, Dr. Don Mackie in a statement.
