What kind of sterilization practices does your office have in place?
In our office, we are committed to putting patient safety first. That includes keeping our instruments and patient care rooms sterile. Instruments that cut bone, penetrate soft tissue, or touch mucous membranes are cleaned of debris and sterilized in a state-of-the-art autoclave between patients. Every week, the autoclave is tested to make certain it is working in compliance with CDC sterilization requirements.
To avoid cross infection (transferring infection from one patient to another), each patient care room is cleaned between patients using a surface sterilization spray. Distilled water is used for all our dental procedures to avoid microbial contamination. Our team also washes their hands and changes their gloves between patients.
You may still have questions about our sterilization practices even after coming to the office. Please let us know any concerns you may have or if we can provide you with more information about the steps we take to protect your health.
