Infection control is an important part of any health practice. For the safety of our patients and staff, we strictly observe the infection control guidelines. We use universal precautions as recommended by the Canadian dental Association and Center for Disease Control. We use dental masks, gloves, and safety glasses for all our patients.
The dental rooms are sanitized for every patient, maintaining the optimum in asepsis, for every visit. Our instruments are sterilized by autoclave (steam sterilizer). The items which are not sterilized are either disposable or cold sterilized using a chemical solution.
Our office uses bottled water (instead of city tap water) in our dental system to prevent biofilm formation in dental unit waterlines. This reduces bacterial contamination in dental water lines and dental units.
We welcome your questions and suggestions.
