Dental Care for Infection

Dr. John Hendry and his staff are committed to providing your family with the safest and most responsible dental care available. As recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the Occupational Safety Health Administration (OSHA), we use the appropriate combination of disposable and reusable instruments. In addition, all reusable instruments are heat sterilized (autoclaved) after each use. These types of procedures, in addition to state of the art equipment that allows for efficient surface disinfections, allow us to far exceed OSHA and CDC guidelines.

The particular procedures performed routinely in our office include:

Barrier Controls All clinical staff members wear protective eyewear and masks, and change gloves between each patient.

Sterilization At the completion of every procedure, all reusable instruments are scrubbed, run through an ultrasonic cleaner, and then sterilized by state of the art autoclave and dry heating systems.

Disposable Items All disposable items are immediately discarded once used or exposed to the treatment field.

Disinfectants Used on chairs, counter tops, and all other surface areas in the treatment room following each procedure.

Our goal and responsibility is to provide unsurpassed safety and comfort for both patients and our own staff members. Should you have any additional questions or concerns, please ask us.
