We are committed to staying current with the latest in infection control and sterilization guidelines. Our goal is to provide the highest level of safety and you may feel comfortable in knowing that the following procedures are routinely performed:
-Disinfectant hand soap.
-Gloves and face masks.
-Chemical disinfectant of countertops and surfaces.
-Sterilization of all equipment (including all dental hand pieces)
-Disposable materials used as protective barriers that cover the dental chair, dental light, and handles.
-Individual tray set-ups with sterile instruments are utilized for all procedures.
We sterilize all instruments and equipment using an "Autoclave", a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam under pressure. We use an independent commercial monitoring service to insure proper maintenance of sterilizing equipment.
The best defense against disease is information. Don’t let uncertainty about safety keep you away from the dentist’s office, or cause anxiety while you’re there. A few minutes of conversation with the dental team can set your mind at ease.
