Sterilization Tech


The safety of our patients and their families are of the utmost importance, and we feel having a dedicated sterilization technician will ensure that all protocols and standards are consistently being met.

Our techs are responsible for operating and maintaining all the sterilization equipment, and diligently making sure that all of the instruments in the office are properly disinfected, sanitized, packaged, sterilized and distributed. They assemble all of the operative trays that are used during your visit with us and make sure the operatories are meticulously reset for the next patient. You may also see them wiping down surfaces in the common areas in the office throughout the day. We will continually strive to exceed the industry standards for infection control.
