Sterilization Practices

Home » Sterilization Practices

Your safety and comfort are our top priority at Family Dental Choice.

Pre-visit health check

We screen patients for current health status and potential symptoms before they arrive.

Contactless check-in

We ask patients to call the office to let us know they have arrived and wait in their car until we’re ready to see them.

Your safety comes first.

From temperature checks to social distancing, we prioritize your health every step of the way.

Temperature check

We take the temperature of all incoming patients and visitors.


We ask patients to wear masks while seated in the waiting area or moving about the office.

Social distancing

We ask patients to maintain six feet of separation while in the office.

A safer clinical experience for you and your family

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you and your family safe.

Sterilized equipment

We have a dedicated sterilization area for all dental equipment.

Enhanced PPE

We wear masks, face shields, gowns, and gloves to protect our patients and team.

Same-day dentistry

We offer same-day treatment whenever possible to reduce trips to the office.

Advanced sanitization

All high-touch areas are sanitized between each use, including chairs, doorknobs, counters, pens, and tools.

Safer spaces

Common objects like magazines and toys are removed from the waiting area to reduce the spread of germs.

Real-time safety updates

We are closely monitoring the CDC, ADA, and OSHA. As they update their guidelines, we will update our safety practices in real-time.
