As part of our commitment to patient safety and infection control, White Lotus Dental includes a sterilization area where all equipment can be properly cleaned and sterilized between use. Following the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), our sterilizing equipment is checked every week to ensure maximum effectiveness. Once an instrument is sterilized, it is placed in a sealed package to protect it until it is used. The equipment used during your appointment will be unwrapped in front of you so you know your instruments are clean. If you have any questions or concerns about our sterilization practices, please let us know so we can help you feel more comfortable.
