Our Sterilization

Our patients' health and safety comes first. We use the latest hygienic disinfectant procedures after each patient’s visit. We disinfect all of our treatment areas. In addition, we utilize ultrasonic techniques to clean and autoclave all non-disposable instruments. Our staff wears appropriate PPE recommended by the CDC during every treatment as well.
