When you visit our office, you might notice some of the things we do to maintain a sterile environment. We take disease control very seriously, and you can rest assured that we take all the proper precautions to keep you safe!
In the Office
Sterilization is now—and always has been—a concern in our office. We keep up with every new and more effective method of preventing cross-contamination. The gloves and masks are the most visible part of our program. But there’s more to it than that.
We use the best methods to sterilize our instruments, no matter how much time it takes. We’ve sought out devices to monitor the effectiveness of our autoclave, a steam-heated sterilization unit.
We use as many disposable items as possible, and staff members are meticulous in the cleaning of trays, counters, chairs—after every appointment, every day!
We’re sharing this with you to encourage questions—any questions at all—you might have about sterilization and disease control. There are so many real risks to fear in life—we don’t want your dental health to rank among them.
