Infection Control Methods & Technology

The health and safety of our patients is our #1 priority. We go above and beyond to ensure that our instruments and operatories are disinfected and sterilized according to the RCDSO, CDC guidelines.

Sterilization is a complex process requiring specialized equipment, adequate space, qualified staff and regular monitoring for quality assurance.

We package and seal our instruments then sterilize them in an autoclave using steam under pressure. Biological indicators are used on a daily basis to ensure proper sterilization has been achieved.

Monitors/TVs

There’s no room for guess work! We want to ensure that you have all the information you need to make informed and educated decisions about you and your family’s oral health. That’s why we provide monitors in every exam and hygiene room. When your doctor is explaining your treatment plan, you’ve got all the facts, backed up by visuals.

Digital X-Rays

We use digital x-ray technology. Not only do the clarity of the images result in a more accurate diagnosis than your typical x-ray, but the images are produced instantly, enabling us to make quicker treatment recommendations. Digital x-rays produce 80% less radiation than your typical x-ray machine!

Laser Gum Recontouring

If you feel like you have a “gummy” smile, or your gums are too low (receding gums), you may be a good candidate for laser gum recontouring. Laser gum recontouring is the process of surgically correcting and reshaping the gums. While this can be considered a cosmetic dentistry procedure, gum surgery is often required as an integral part of various dental surgeries and restorative treatments. Laser gum recontouring is a minor procedure with a typically quick healing time.
