Sterilization Protocol

Safety Procedures to Protect Your Family

We care for your family like we care for our own. We make sure our safety and sterilization precautions are strictly followed and practiced by all team members at Wilhoite Family Dental. The levels of sanitization and sterilization we adhere to let us ensure the highest standard of care in the safest environment possible. 

Our Standard Health Practices

With your family’s well being as the priority, our staff is educated and trained on the procedures recommended by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We implement these procedures into our daily routine to make our office as safe as possible. 

We practice the following standards of sterilization: 

  • Requiring the use of gloves and face masks for clients and staff
  • Locating sinks with disinfectant hand soap throughout the office
  • Using disposable materials when possible
  • Cleaning countertops and surfaces with EPA-approved chemical disinfectants
  • Sterilizing equipment before and after each use

When your family comes to our office, you will see all team members practicing these procedures. They will be wearing disposable gloves and masks while ensuring that all exam rooms are thoroughly cleaned before, during and after your visit with us. 

When possible, our team uses disposable materials. Most, if not all, materials used during your appointment are disposable to ensure we are keeping you safe and healthy. Materials that are not disposable are thoroughly disinfected between each use. 

Committed to Your Family’s Safety

With our dedication to training and education in our sterilization procedures, we strive to make our office a safe place for your family. We stay up to date with all guidelines from the American Dental Association and the CDC. 

We are honored you trust Wilhoite Family Dental to provide your family the best dental care. If you have any questions regarding our sterilization procedures or how we keep you safe, please call us at (765) 289-6373.
