Sterilization Techniques

Dr. Geeta utilizes the latest technology and techniques to ensure quality results for her patients. This includes using the best dental equipment as well as the best dental supplies. This gives her patients a greater chance of realizing the results that they desire. Our office is regulated by OSHA. As such we maintain complete adherence to these important standards.


Universal Precautions:

Universal precautions are safety procedures established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association. They are used for each and every patient to prevent the transmission of the AIDS virus and other infectious diseases. These precautions require Dr. Geeta and her staff involved in patient care to use appropriate protective garb such as gloves, and masks and eyewear. After each patient visit, the gloves are discarded, and a new pair of gloves is used for the next patient.  


Instrument sterilization:

According to a recent study in the journal of the American Dental Association, Dr. Geeta and her staff sterilize their hand piece (drill) and all other instruments between patients. Dental offices follow specific heat sterilization procedures which are outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Dental Association. Disposable items, such as needles and saliva ejectors, cannot be sterilized and are discarded in special containers.


Sterilization methods:

Dental instruments are cleaned and sterilized at very high temperatures after each time they are used on a patient. Dr. Geeta and her staff use an autoclave. The sterilization equipment usually is not in the treatment room, but if you'd like to see how and where it's done, Dr. Geeta and her staff will be more than happy to show you.


Disinfect the examining room:

Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles and countertops have been cleaned and decontaminated. Dr. Geeta’s office covers these equipments with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient. Sharp items and anything contaminated with blood or saliva are disposed of in special containers.


Other safety guidelines:

OSHA, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, has specific regulations that protect employees from injury and illness in the work place. These "safe workplace" regulations pertain to occupational settings, including dental offices with one or more employees. While the primary purpose of the regulations is to safeguard employees, these procedures also protect the patient. For example, gloves provide protection for both you and the dental team.

Don't let uncertainty about safety keep you away from Dr. Geeta’s office, or cause anxiety while you're there, when a few minutes of conversation with Dr. Geeta can set your mind at ease. Your dental health is too important and do not neglect it.



Back
It has character. The rolex replica one for me, like others comments below. A railroad minute track runs the periphery of the dial, with a well proportioned minute hand reaching all the way to said track and the hour hand sitting comfortably just inside the hour markers. The moon face itself is made of platinum like most aspects of this replica watches and the indicator also displays the age of the moon in 6 day intervals. This is a rather unusual feature and provides a measurement of exactly how many replica watches sale the moon has progressed. The rolex replica uk of the disc is adorned with applied stars, presumably also in platinum although rolex watches havent specified as such. Speaking of the strap, the hublot replica is hand stitched using a combination of silk and platinum thread, and is secured with a half Maltese cross shaped folding replica watches sale in 950 platinum.
