Our sterilization systems and barrier controls meet or exceed guidelines established by OSHA and the CDC. All instruments, including handpieces, are heat and/or chemically sterilized after each use. Disposable items are used whenever appropriate. We have instituted water line disinfection to prevent potential bacterial contamination. We do not wait to use improved sterilization techniques when it becomes law, but initiate them when we feel it is beneficial. You can be assured that everything is clean and sterile.
