Sterilization and Safety


When you visit SommersFamilyDental, you can feel confident that we have taken every possible step to protect your safety. Our dentists and staff continue to improve their skills through continuing education courses designed to keep them up-to-date on the latest techniques and procedures. We work with quality dental materials and laboratories that consistently deliver excellent results.

For patient safety, we follow rigid standards for disinfection and sterilization. All instruments are cleaned, heat sterilized after each use and operatories are disinfected. Disposable items are replaced for each patient. When taking xrays, patients wear protective lead aprons and thyroid collars for added safety.

The American Dental Association (ADA) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have strict guidelines that act as another layer of protection for our patients. These standards specify the procedures for instrument sterilization and infection control. We watch for updates and continue to review our procedures so that we can exceed these recommendations.
