BransonDental Sterilization Area

Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Our Doctors and receive a straightforward answer. We would be happy to give you a tour of our sterilization area and a copy of our written and enforced protocol.

Our Doctors and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

These measures include:

  • Hydrim washers
  • Bravo Autoclaves 
  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Safety glasses for our patients and assistants
  • Latex Free gloves and face masks
  • Cavicide disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use a Bravo autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
