We at 32Strong follow all the disinfection and sterilization procedures needed for infection control. For us infection control is important both for the patient as well as our dental team since both are at equal risk. Same protocol is used for each and every patient to prevent the transmission of the AIDS virus and other infectious diseases. All our staff involved in patient care use appropriate protection such as gloves, and masks. After each patient visit, the gloves are discarded, hands are washed and a new pair of gloves is used for the next patient.
NEEDLESS TO SAY THAT THE DISPOSABLES LIKE NEEDLES, SYRINGES GLASSES, PATIENT’S DRAPES ARE ALL FOR ONE TIME USAGE & TO BE DISCARDED AFTER ONE USE.
We Follow Four Tier Sterilization Protocol For Non Disposable Instruments.
All the instruments are scrubbed thoughoroly with Spirit Swabs to remove any attached debris.
the instruments are then immersed in 5% Korsolex Sterlizing solution for atleast 45 min for standard disinfection

Areas of Application
Korsolex is ideal for the disinfection and sterilisation of:
* Instruments made of metal, porcelain, glass, plastic, stainless steel, ceramics, rubber
* Diamond cutting burs, root canal and hand set instruments etc.
The cold sterile instruments are then packed in individualized sterile packs that contain instruments, gauze, cotton balls and suction devices (photograph). Our patients are reassured when a new pack of supplies is opened in front of them prior to treatment.
The standardized sterilization method used in our dental office is: autoclaving (Autoclave sterilizes by steam at 121 degree centigrade under minimum 15 pounds of pressure for minimum 15 minutes It is much more than boiling, this procedure of sterilization is used in hospitals for carrying out major surgeries), these measures are carried out rigorously and consistently and demonstrate our commitment to your safety.
Dental instruments in sterilized packages are stored in U.V CHAMBER to maintain the sterilization, which are opened in front of the patient.
