Infection Control at Greenspandental
We have one autoclave running at all times for your safety. Our dental sterilization protocol is rigorous and completely sterilizes all bacteria.
Cleanliness and infection control of our office for all dental equipment is one of the most important aspects of what we do to protect you.
What is Autoclave Sterilization and infection control ?
Autoclave usage is the heart of our infection control system. An autoclave is a machine that uses high temperature and steam pressure (up to 270 F) to kill bacteria effectively. The autoclave heats items above the boiling point for a time until the equipment is clean and free of germs.
Autoclaves are designed for safety, and due to the heavy pressure built up inside the machine , it has an auto-lock mechanism when it is turned on and unlocks when sterilization is finished. Dr. Greenspan is exceptionally diligent in proper dental office procedures to ensure your safety. Just come into our office and ask us to show you how careful we are in this matter of infection control
Every item we use is either disposable or goes through an infection protocol. We wear disposable cloaks and go through hundreds of pairs of gloves a day in the course of treating our patients
We are always donning fresh gloves , masks and wearing safety glasses.
As you can see Dr.Anderkvist and his staff go to great lengths to be certain your visit to our office is not only enjoyable, but also SAFE!
Clean and Dirty
Where items can not go through an autoclave without being destroyed we employ liquid sterilization.
