At Riley Dental, your safety is our #1 concern. All of the instruments used during patient treatment are cleaned and sterilized according to the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). All of the instruments used for patient treatment are wrapped or packaged with internal monitors for each set of instruments, to indicate each set has been properly processed. The instruments are placed in sealed packages to protect the sterility of the instruments until they are opened at the time your treatment begins. Our sterilization equipment is tested for effectiveness on a weekly basis according to CDC guidelines.
If you ever have any questions regarding the safety protocols we follow to protect you, please let us know. We are happy to discuss these issues with you and to show you how we sterilize our instruments.
