All instruments used for treatment in our office are sterilized according to the latest OSHA/HIOSH requirements. Every item has been carefully pre-cleaned, dried, packaged and treated in an autoclave at 265 degrees with 25 PSI for 15 minutes or more. To ensure proper operation, our autoclave sterilizers are monitored weekly by the SporAmpule biological indicator. Your operatory has also been prepared just for you. Every touchable surface has been pre-cleaned, sprayed and wiped down with hospital level disinfectant. In accordance with OSHA and CDC (Center for Disease Control) specifications, protective barriers have been placed, eliminating any chance of cross-contamination. Annually our staff completes a thorough training program designed to assure compliance with the requirements of OSHA’s regulations on infection and hazard control.
