Sterilization & Infection Control

Our infection control procedures

We control infection in a number of ways. We scrub our hands before and after each appointment, and always put on a new pair of disposable gloves. We also wear masks and protective eye wear. All instruments are sterilized with an autoclave, and our hand pieces are always heat sterilized between patients.

In many cases, we use disposable supplies, such as paper bibs, paper cups, cotton rolls, and gauze pads to avoid potential infection. We use protective barriers on exposed surfaces, like the handles on light fixtures and other equipment. All other surfaces are disinfected according to government standards.
