Welcome, Dr. Lee Morrow & patients! We are so glad to have you as part of our family.
Cleanliness is of the utmost importance to ensure patient safety in dental offices. At Joanna Kleckner DDS, we take cleanliness seriously and strictly follow the guidelines set forth by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the American Dental Association (ADA). We accomplish our stellar record of infection control with our thorough dental sterilization policy
At Joanna Kleckner DDS, we have a thorough Dental Sterilization Policy that we are strictly following for every patient. This includes standard precautions, specific guidelines from the CDC, OSHA, ADA, as well as additional engineering controls to ensure patient safety.
We have always gone above and beyond with precautions to maintain our high standard of cleanliness and sterilization. We’ve recently implemented even more precautions to help keep the air cleaner and our patients safe.
At your last visit, you may have noticed how many instruments we use to get your teeth beautiful and healthy. Before we use any of our instruments, we make sure they are clean and sterile.
To get our instruments ready for each patient, we place our instruments into dental sterilization equipment per the ADA, CDC, and OSHA. This means putting all appropriate tools into our dental autoclave (steam sterilizer). The sterilizer heats instruments to 270 degrees Farenheit to remove any bacteria or viruses.
At Joanna Kleckner DDS, you can be sure your visit will be safe and comfortable. We have always placed a priority on going above and beyond with our sterilization and cleaning protocols. Hopefully by learning about how we provide infection control in our dental office makes you feel informed and ready to make the decision to get your dental needs met by us. We look forward to seeing you! Please give us a call to reserve your appointment time.
