For the health and safety of our patients and staff, this office meets or exceeds all prescribed government and professional standards for sterilization and infection control. This includes the heat sterilization of all instruments, including handpieces, prior to their use by any patient. They are individually wrapped and sealed. All surfaces subject to possible contamination that cannot be sterilized, such as chairs and counters, are disinfected with professionally approved chemicals. Staff involved in patient contact wear gloves that are
changed between each patient and also masks. The water in our dental units is specially treated to prevent bacterial growth within the equipment. If you have any questions about this subject, please consult with our staff.
