Our practice takes stringent measures to minimize the risk of infection. There is no carpeting on the floor to trap bacteria and rooms are sterilized regularly. Any instrument used in a patient's mouth is either disposable or designed to withstand heat sterilization after use. Instruments to be sterilized are first wash with antiseptic solution then goes under disinfectants and ultrasonic cleaner. We use autoclavable pouches to wrap the instruments and then transferred to an autoclave for heat sterilization. The pouches remains sealed until they are used. The wrapping serves as a sterile field on which to place instruments during procedures.
All items used on patients are disposed regularly. We adopt stringent measures to prevent cross infection and cross contamination.
