As health care professionals we have a responsibility to provide you with the best and safest care available. We take that to heart and never miss a step when it comes to your safety and the sterilization of our equipment. We surpass state guidelines and have set our own, higher standards of safety. We follow all protocols set by the American Dental Association and Center for Disease Control.
We use disposable, eco-friendly supplies, non-latex materials, sterile distilled water, and Mercury removal systems. Every patient is presented with a disinfected clinical space and recently sterilized instruments. The first step to your having a great experience, while achieving a beautiful smile, is your safety. We take every precaution to ensure your safety by regularly testing our equipment for proper function and checking our instruments for no contamination. Ann Arbor’s Dentist also avoids harsh, environmentally damaging chemicals for the benefit of your health as well as that of the environment.
Instruments and devices are free from organic and inorganic materials which otherwise pose the risk of disease transmission. We specifically utilize a unique combination of gravity displacement steam sterilization, pre-vaccum steam injection sterilization, dry heat, environmental surface disinfection, unsaturated chemical vapor, ultrasonic cleaning and mechanical disinfection. We also use eco-friendly single use items when appropriate.
We live in an era when people want to be safe and prefer an environment that is risk free. We understand and keep Ann Arbor’s Dentist at a level of sterilization above mandated levels. Another way we put our patient’s minds at ease.
