Sterilization Procedures

Dedicated to Your Health and Safety

Dr. Rich always provides a safe and clean environment. We meet or exceed all guidelines set forth by the ADA, OSHA, and the Center for Disease Control.

Providing a clean, disinfected environment for each patient is critical. We flush our waterlines with specially treated clear water solutions. All instruments and handpieces go through a three-step sterilization process, the last step being steam sterilization, so that each patient we treat is completely protected. When possible, we use disposable items. We also use protective equipment including gloves, masks, and eyewear.

We welcome your questions about sterilization and patient protection. We want you to feel comfortable about your treatment.
