Current Infection control guidelines recommends that instruments be sterilized in an autoclave which is a machine that uses steam and pressure to kill all infection and viruses. We have instruments placed in a ultrasonic washer first. Each Instrument has a biological indicator to ensure each load is tested safely. All Sterile instruments remain in sterile packaging until you're are in the chair for treatment. Or staff are educated on the most up to date guidelines for infection prevention and control. If you need any further information or would like a tour of our sterilization just ask.
