Sterilization and infection control
Our office is very concerned, as you are, about infection control. Wherever possible we use disposable supplies. Non-disposable supplies are scrubbed, bagged and sterilized in our state of the art autoclave. For your protection, we have the latest hospital grade sterilization equipment and techniques, including “solid-surface” counter tops which are impervious to any stains, bacteria, and viruses.
We have installed a TriangleTM Sterilization Center”. The TriangleTM is a self contained unit that systematizes and facilitates the sterilization of instruments and equipment. It features solid surface countertops, an ultrasonic cleaner, a hospital grade sterilizer, and an area for “cold sterile” solutions.
