How are dental tools cleaned? Ask a Winnipeg Dentist

Q: Does my dentist use new tools every time? How do I know what’s being used is actually clean?A: We want to make your dentist appointment as comfortable as possible. Before you enter the office our team follows standard precautions to sterilize our instruments. We are highly trained in proper sterilization techniques and take annual continuing education courses to remain updated on current safety standards.

Each instrument is handled with care and cleaned using thermal disinfectors, hospital-grade sterilizers and large-capacity ultrasonic baths. The machines are foot operated to keep our hands clean.

Let your dentist know if you have any questions about the sterilization and cleaning procedures during your next appointment! We’d be happy to show you our state-of- the-art sterilization centres.

Schedule an appointment at either of our Winnipeg dentist offices (St. Vital or Garden City) today.
