Rather than wait for some governmental regulation, Dr. Trok and Dr. Krider decided to be proactive. We installed the “Pureline” water purifier by Sterisil. It is a state-of-the-art water treatment system that provides 100% bacteria-free water from our Fort Wayne dental unit to your mouth.
Another piece of the infection control puzzle is the sterilization area and how we handle those instruments that go into your mouth. Our SteriCenter is organized to give us a packet of instruments that are safely and securely wrapped in a strong metal cassette. We know that by carefully and scientifically monitoring each sterilization cycle, every instrument that was contaminated is absolutely sterile. Because it is sealed in a high-tech paper wrap, the instruments remain sterile until we open the cassette for you.
