How we sterilize our equipment for your safety
We will walk you through our sterilization methods for your satisifaction - Feel free to watch!
First we use surgical stainless steel and then we place them into a heat activated ultrasonic bath to remove all surface debris, and then are scrubbed, rinsed and dried.
After they are dry, the instruments are packaged in surgical wrap and placed in high heat and steam pressure autoclave to sterilize the instruments.
The instruments remain packaged until the treatment room is set up for you.
While not required by provincial licensing body (RCDSO) the autoclave is tested by a microbiologist to ensure total destruction of all infectious organisms.
