WE UNDERSTAND THAT THE NEWS sometimes covers stories about dentists who endanger their patients with improper sterilization practices. We know that such stories can be scary and that’s why we wanted to declare that with us, you don’t need to worry.
Every time you come to Longwood Dental Group you can be confident that you’re in good hands. We hold ourselves to the highest standards of cleanliness because we value your health and safety. For us, dentistry is about more than beautiful teeth—it’s about life-long well being.
At Longwood Dental Group, you can always expect:
- A clean examination space, free from any possible infections from a previous patient.
- Thoroughly sterilized instruments, packaged and protected just for you.
- Treatment from healthy team members who follow strict personal cleanliness standards and wear appropriate personal protection equipment like gloves and masks.
Please, if you have any questions or concerns, ask us! Ask to see our safety accreditation, ask about the sterilization process that all our tools undergo, ask what we do to ensure that every surface in our office is clean and safe.
We want to be completely transparent about our infection control procedures so that you can feel totally safe and confident in the dental chair. We understand that it takes trust to put yourself in our hands and we take pride in proving ourselves worthy of that trust.
