When you come to our office you can rest assured that our sterilization protocol meets or exceeds the guidelines issued by the Center For Disease Control and the Occupational Safety and Health Agency. Some of the precautions we take are as follows:

 

  • Instrument sterilization is performed under heat and pressure
  • Our dental handpieces are heat sterilized after each use
  • Disposable items are used whenever possible
  • Anesthetic cartridges and needles, air/water syringe tips, saliva suction tips, etc. are all discarded after one use
  • Plastic barriers are in use throughout the office
  • Before and after each patient, all work surfaces, lights' and units are disinfected with a strong bactericidal and viricidal agent
  • New gloves are worn by the clinical staff for each patient. It is not uncommon to use several pairs of new gloves for a patient if the procedure is lengthy

 

 

Training

Training of our staff is an ongoing process with an in-office review of sterilization procedures as well as continuing education courses updating us on the latest techniques and standards. You may be rest assured that our commitment to you, and all of our patients, demands that we employ all technological advancements as they become available to ensure your health and well-being.
