Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics features a state-of-the-art sterilization system. We maintain the highest standards of infection control, adhering diligently to the recommendations provided by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Our unwavering commitment to safeguarding the wellbeing of our young patients and our team members drives us to consistently surpass mandated sterilization protocols, ensuring that our office remains a pristine and healthful environment.
The cornerstone of our infection control strategy revolves around the rigorous sterilization of all equipment before and after every use. We employ a repertoire of state-of-the-art sterilization techniques, including autoclaving (steam under pressure), dry heat, and heat or chemical vapor. By meticulously sterilizing instruments and surfaces, we thwart the proliferation of harmful bacteria, bolstering your family’s safety and wellbeing.
Before instruments even enter the sterilization process, we undertake thorough cleaning to eliminate any residual debris, assuring their safety for use in your child’s treatment. Moreover, wherever feasible, we opt for disposable materials and tools, eliminating any possibility of cross-contamination through reuse.
Rest assured, your child’s health and comfort remain our highest concerns. We are completely committed to taking every essential measure to protect your family during their visit to our office. If you have questions about sterilization in Austin, Texas, or want to schedule your child’s appointment with our pediatric dentist, Dr. Reza Arzegar, please contact our office at 512-892-2443.
