At Greenbelt Dental Health in Austin TX, nothing has higher priority than infection control. For your safety, as well as our own, Dr. Christopher Naranjo and his team follow specific steps for the sterilization of our tools and environment, and the control of infection.
Some of the instruments used in patient care are disposable and do not further require sterilization, but we try to minimize disposable instruments to stay more environmentally conscious. Reusable instruments are properly cleaned, disinfected, and run through a powerful autoclave sterilizer that is monitored by an independent laboratory to verify its effectiveness. This sterilizer kills all bacteria, viruses, and spores. Our office has twice voluntarily invited an Occupational Safety and Health Administration examiner for an on-site inspection. Both times, we exceeded their standards for safety. In addition, we have yearly OSHA trainings to make sure we are up to date on our infection control.
We operate our practice with the goal of exceeding patients’ expectations. We are able to monitor our procedures closely for infection control because we focus our attention on meticulous work with individual patients, rather than running a high-volume office. We are happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our practice, our services, and our infection control procedures. Please feel free to call, email, or simply stop by to meet our staff and tour the office.
