Here at Precision Dental Group, we sterilize our instruments thoroughly before use. The instruments are cleaned thoroughly of any biomaterials with an ultrasonic machine. After the disinfection stage, our kits and instruments are wrapped and prepped to be sterilized in an autoclave. Our kits are wrapped tightly in autoclave paper and sealed with autoclave tape. The tape changes color in the autoclave when the temperature and pressure have reached ideal specifications to ensure sterilization. Our instruments are packaged in sealed pouches which have dual color changing indicators that change color when sterilized in the autoclave. We send our instruments through this rigorous process to ensure safety and a sterile environment for all our patients.
Cleaning the Operatory
Our operatories are cleaned with Cavicide and Caviwipes before and after each patient. Each operatory has single use barrier tape placed on handles and a headrest cover that is replaced each patient. We use the Dentapure water filtration system to ensure cleanliness of the water. High touch areas are wiped daily with Chlorox wipes.
Personal Protective Equipment
All of our assistants and doctors are trained in infection control protocols and wear personal protective equipment. Medical grade masks and gloves are changed with every patient. All patients and staff members have temperature checks taken at the front desk before seating.
