The mission of Occupational Safety and Health Administration is to save lives, prevent injuries and protect the health of American workers.
The team at Demboski Family Dental practice Universal Precautions. This is the set of infection control practices used to prevent transmission of diseases that can be acquired by contact with blood, bodily fluids, non-intact skin and mucous membranes.
Infection control is our number one priority to help increase patient care. This is achieved through precautionary procedures taken in health care settings to prevent the spread of disease.
Things we use in our sterilization room:
Utrasonic cleaner- uses cavitation bubbles induced by high frequency pressure (sound) waves to agitate a liquid. The agitation produced high forces on contamination adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber and ceramics
Autoclave-Steam pressure to 270 degrees for 5 minutes with a 30 minute dry cycle. There are chemical indicators on the sterilization pouches that confirm the pouches and instruments reached to the correct temperature for sterilization. We check these every time instruments are finished with a cycle.
Also biological test strips are sent to a sterilization monitoring service weekly to confirm our sterilizers working up to code every day.
