We are doing everything within our capabilities to assure the sterility and safety of our working environment. By following the guidelines, as well as continually reviewing updates on infection control materials and techniques, we are optimizing our ability to achieve this in our office. Our commitment is to provide you, the same standards that we expect and demand for our own families and ourselves.
Many long hours have gone into the design of our patient protection system. The use of fresh gloves and masks, and protective eyewear are some of the more prominent steps that are taken to ensure your safety.
Between each patient, the treatment rooms are thoroughly wiped with a surface disinfectant (Surfasept SA, Septodont France). The instruments are put through a system of ultrasonic scrubbing (the same system that a jeweler might use to clean fine jewelry)attach pic of ultrasonic cleaner and then sterilized with a large, pressurized steam oven called an autoclave (Cristofoli, Italy)attach pic of autoclave. The instruments are packaged in such a fashion that ensures they are never touched before actual setup in the treatment room, and when the instruments are touched it is with gloved hands. All of our handpieces (drills) are also thoroughly wiped with the surface disinfectant and then sterilized in a pressured steam oven. All of our scaler tips (cleaning & polishing instrument) are autoclaved so that you and your family can be assured that you will always have a sterilized one every time you have your teeth cleaned. We use disposable products whenever possible to eliminate cross-infection.
We hope by making you, our valued patient, more aware of what measures are being taken on your behalf, that your trust and confidence in our team will make your visits a little more comfortable.
