In our office, a top priority is our patients' safety. To ensure this, we follow the most rigorous protocols of sterilization and infection control, above and beyond what is required by law.
Most items used in the mouth are disposable. Those instruments that are reusable are properly cleaned, prepared, and then run through a state-of-the-art autoclave. Power hand-pieces are sterilized between each and every patient. Gloves are changed every time we get up from the dental chair.
Our goal is to exceed what is expected of us. Because we work meticulously with individuals and do not run a volume clinic, we are able to precisely monitor our infection control procedures. Should you or anyone you know have any questions regarding this subject, please feel to call us at (302) 366-TOOTH. We welcome all inquiries about our cleanliness and sterilizing procedures.
