DH Dental follows international standards and best practices when it comes to sterilization of our dental instruments, equipment, soft materials, dental chairs, & more.
Sound sterilization practices in dentistry protect patients, dentists and the whole dental team. They prevent the growth of bacteria on instruments and surfaces throughout the dental practice. They ensure that the germs in your mouth don’t make it into anyone else’s and that no one who’s been in the chair before you has passed along anything to you.
At DH Dental we enforce very strict sterilization guidelines and procedures for all of our equipment, instruments, dental chairs, soft materials and anything that comes in contact with the dental staff or patient.
We take great pride in our sterilization methods and follow international standards. We use both small form and large form autoclaves & sterilization machines for all instruments. Any instrument or equipment that is sterilized in placed in sterilization pouches and cassettes, sealing the sterile instrument until it is used. Every and all instruments and equipment’s used are sterilized after every patient. We never use the same item twice without a full wash, soak, and sterilization cycle between patients.
All of our soft materials are fully sterile before use. All surfaces and chairs are disinfected and wiped down before, after, and between all patients ensuring a clean, safe, and sterilize environment for each patient that visits.

At DH Dental we take cross infection control very seriously – in fact it is our top priority to ensure all of our patients a clean, safe, & sterile working environment.
The increase in the number of transmissible diseases has led to global concern and has affected the way dentistry is practiced. Dentistry is involved in treatment that includes contact with blood, mucosa or blood-contaminated body fluids, including saliva. At DH Dental we use proper universal precautions such as treatment gloves, masks, protective eye wear, over garments, plastic barriers to protect equipment’s, proper use of disinfectants and sterilization to prevent cross infection. All of these measures are taken at DH Dental with strict supervision by our senior dental staff.
These measures can prevent the spread of diseases from one patient to another and can also stop transmission from patient to dentist and vice-versa.
We also implement engineering controls to reduce production of contaminated spatter, mists and aerosols. Safe handling of contaminated needles and other sharp items, along with proper disposal, is essential and strictly followed in our clinic. Infection control measures to be undertaken in the presence of an exposure are trained to all of our staff. Our clinic also implements a struct infection control policy which we are glad to share with any patient. Proper management of dental waste is also undertaken to prevent contamination of water and food. Proper precautions while handling needles and sharp object is undertaken to prevent accidents.
