Infection Control

From the moment you walk into our dental office, you will notice a clean environment. That is because we care about your safety and comfort. We take pride in the fact that our safety and infection control protocols have always surpassed the recommendations of the American Dental Association (ADA) and the CDC.

Our entire office is regularly cleaned, maintained, and disinfected.

All of our air filters are changed well before the recommended replacement date to ensure their full efficiency.

All treatment rooms are fully disinfected after use following the guidelines provided by the American Dental Association and CDC.

Our treatment instruments follow a vigorous sterilization protocol. All instruments are first processed through an ultrasonic bath. This ultrasonic bath sends micro-vibrations through a cleaning solution to remove even the tiniest debris off of the instruments. Once the instruments are removed from the bath they are manually scrubbed and inspected to ensure that all debris is removed. Following this, the instruments are sterilized in an autoclave unit. An autoclave is a sterilization unit that uses high-temperature steam and pressure to kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores. The instruments come out of the unit completely sterile and sealed in a special sterile bag. The instruments are then ready to be used for treatment.

For many procedures, we also use disposable sterile instruments and barriers.

All of our sterilizers are regularly tested and pass all quality control tests ensuring they are working efficiently. These tests are thoroughly documented.

Our sterilization room and process are visible for everyone to see because we take pride in our efforts to exceed the recommendations from the American Dental Association and CDC for safety and infection control.
