What precautions do you take to ensure patient safety?
At the Lawrenceville dental practice of Dr. Carter, we heat sterilize all instruments in an autoclave that is tested on a regular basis by an independent company. If an instrument can’t be heat sterilized, we submerge it in a chemical sterilant for 24 hours. After each visit is completed, we thoroughly clean and wipe down treatment rooms with a hospital grade surface disinfectant cleaner. We also use barrier techniques to protect hard-to-clean surfaces in the treatment rooms.
