Your Safety is our Top Concern!

dental health safety calgary nw

At Nosehill Dental, we are committed to your health and safety at all times. We take our sterilization and infection control procedures very seriously to ensure that your dental health and safety are protected at all times. We understand that many of our patients have questions about our safety practices. Please know that we are taking all precautions to ensure our staff and patients’ safety, and we follow very strict sterilization and infection control procedures in our office.

Our Health and Safety Measures

  • Clean Clinic and Equipment
  • Health Screening of all patients and staff before entering the clinic
  • Touchless temperature recording of all patients and staff
  • Constant hand sanitizing of all patients and staff, with hand sanitizer positioned throughout the clinic
  • Enhanced and frequent disinfection of all contact surfaces
  • Autoclave (pressurized steam):
    All dental instruments are sterilized in a high-pressure steam autoclave. We also sterilize all hand pieces (drills) and burs (dill bits) after each use. This process is the standard of care. Our new computerized autoclave informs us in the event of an incomplete sterilization cycle. As an added assurance we also employ an outside testing agency to ensure that our autoclave is producing sterile instruments.
  • Chemical Sterilization:
    Many of the items we use (plastics) are unable to tolerate the heat produced by steam sterilization. These items are sterilized in chemical solutions, which destroy both bacteria and viruses.
  • Surface Decontamination:
    All surfaces including countertops, dental chairs, stools, light handles, and control buttons are disinfected with chemical solutions. These solutions are formulated to eliminate infectious bacteria and viruses that could otherwise proliferate on these surfaces.
  • Disposable Items:
    Many of the items we use today are discarded after a single use. These items include saliva ejectors, high speed suction tips, drinking cups, rubber cleaning cups, patient bibs, tray covers, sterilization bags, mixing pads, mixing tips, anesthetic carpules, and needle tips. Gloves and masks are also discarded after each use.
  • Clean Water Delivery System:
    There has been a considerable amount of media attention focused on the quality of the water that is delivered from the dental operatory. Television shows such as 20/20 have made claims that bacteria present in the local water supplies can multiply inside the water lines of dental chairs and can pose health risks to the general population. All of our dental chairs are equipped with an independent clean water delivery system. This allows us to bypass the water supply and use only the purest water in our dental units. How do we know that it is pure? We know because we make our own water right here on the premises using either our reverse osmosis system or our ion exchange water demonized.
  • Online Paperwork:
    Paperwork that we require from all new patients that can be filled out beforehand (which are mobile and easy)
