Safety is a Top Concern for Our Pediatric Dental Patients
To ensure your child's safety, we follow a number of standard sterilization procedures with all instruments and hand pieces. First, they are brought into our sterilization room and placed in an ultrasonic cleaner to remove even microscopic debris. The instruments and hand pieces are then rinsed thoroughly before being sterilized in an autoclave, which runs for 20 minutes and reaches a temperature of 400-425 degrees which destroys all bacteria and all viruses. Our autoclave and dry-heat sterilizer are monitored regularly to ensure their effectiveness and safety. We use sterile water for all dental procedures to further ensure your child's safety.
Staff members use masks, safety glasses, and new gloves for each patient. All staff are updated annually in proper patient protection procedures and have been vaccinated against all common diseases. We will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our patient protection protection, and give you a personal tour of our facility.
