Sterilization

While taking care of your dental needs, we want you to be assured that your health is being attended to professionally and in a sterile environment. We steam sterilize all of our instruments in a machine called a Stat-M. All instruments are sprayed, thoroughly rinsed and then hand scrubbed before entering the steam sterilizer. Inside of the sterilizer, instruments are steamed at extremely high temperatures in order to rid them of any bacteria. After being sterilized, our instruments are bagged in sterile wraps to protect them until they are used again.

All surfaces in the operatories are sprayed and rinsed with chemicals and many of the areas are barriered with plastic, which is removed and discarded after each and every patient. In addition, all of our clinical staff will wear masks and gloves which are also changed and discarded after each individual patient.

Please understand that your health and safety is our primary concern. If you wish to know more about our Safety procedures, just ask us!
