Health and Safety Protocals

Your Health & Safety is our top concern!

At Paramount Dental, we are committed to ensuring that your health and safety is always protected. We are proud of our sterilization and infection control procedures, and we take them very seriously. Our sterilization team follows strict Infection Control Protocol at all times. The following are some of the methods and practices we employ to ensure your safety:

  • Autoclave (pressurized steam): All dental instruments and handpieces (drills) are sterilized in a high-pressure steam autoclave after being cleaned in a HYDRIM® instrument washer. This process is the standard of care. Our computerized autoclave warns us in the event of an incomplete sterilization cycle, and we have protocols in place to correct such issues immediately. As an added precaution we also use an external biological indicator test to ensure that our autoclave is functioning properly and producing sterile instruments.
  • Surface Decontamination: All surfaces including counter-tops, dental chairs, stools, light handles, and control buttons are disinfected with chemical solutions before and after every patient. These solutions are not only formulated to eliminate infectious bacteria and viruses that could otherwise proliferate on these surfaces, but the chemicals themselves also pose no health threat to our patients.
  • Disposable Items: Any item that can be discarded after one use, is disposed of. These items include saliva ejectors, high speed suction tips, drinking cups, rubber cleaning cups, patient bibs, tray covers, sterilization bags, mixing pads, mixing tips, anesthetic carpules, and needle tips, among others. Gloves and masks are also discarded after each use.

If you have any questions about any of our health and safety procedures, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time or ask us at your next visit!

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
