You can rest assured that we are preventing cross-infection. One of today's issues in the oral health community is to control and prevent the spread of infectious diseases including something as simple as the common cold, by using proven cleaning and sterilization methods.
Because your total health and safety are our first priority, our office takes infection control very seriously by adopting the latest in prevention techniques including:
We wear disposable masks and gloves, changing them for each patient. We use barriers on contact surfaces such as lights and keypads to ensure cleanliness.
We disinfect all operatory surfaces prior to each patient visit.
We adhere to the infection control guidelines recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and American Dental Association (ADA).
Instrument Sterilization (IMS)
We ensure that our instruments are properly cleaned and sterilized for our patients. That's why we use the state-of-the-art Hu-Friedy Instrument Management System (IMS)™ for optimal protection.
With the IMS system, you can feel assured that the instruments being used during your appointment have been thoroughly cleaned and sterilized in a manner which safeguards your health. Ask your doctor or assistant for further details on how this affects you.
