Sterilization Protocol

We have an extensive sterilization protocol to keep you and everything around you free from germs. Your safety, health, and comfort are all of the utmost importance, and sterilization is a big part of them. We take steps to give you great care in an environment that is as safe as possible. Our entire team is well-trained in cleanliness and the need for sterilization. They use the best practices recommended by the CDC, the EPA, and OSHA. We use the latest equipment for dental sterilization. Our machines include equipment that uses heat, steam, and pressure to thoroughly clean all dental instruments.

Disposable Items for Cleanliness

We also use disposable items whenever possible to ensure that each item used is entirely clean. We also have disinfecting hand soaps located around the office. We clean the surfaces and countertops in the office often, and we use disinfectants that are approved by the EPA. When you are in the office, you will see us engaged in best practices to keep the office clean and germ-free. We use a number of disposable masks, face shields, gloves, and more, and ensure that we always have clean equipment when we see you.

Reusable Instruments are Sterilized

When we use reusable instruments, we clean, package, sterilize, and disinfect each piece before it’s used. This allows for the most effective cleanings to get rid of all debris, bacteria, and germs. With our thorough cleaning of the instruments as well as the office, we ensure you can have peace of mind in knowing that the facility is always as clean as possible.

At North Florida Dentistry, your safety is always on our minds. We take care to ensure that everything around you is clean and disinfected and that the instruments are sterilized.
