Advanced Sterilization Practices 

At Amedeo and Colonna, LTD, your well-being is our utmost priority, and we go to great lengths to ensure your safety. Experience a dental environment that is not only comfortable but also meticulously maintained for your protection.

Our Commitment to Safety

Our dedicated and compassionate team is well-versed and trained in rigorous sterilization practices. We remain abreast of the lastest protocols recommended by regulatory bodies such as the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Safety is integrated into our daily operations, underscoring our unwavering commitment to your health.

Our safety measures include:

  • The use of gloves and face masks, required for both clients and staff
  • Disinfectant hand soap and sinks conveniently located throughout the office
  • The use of disposable materials whenever possible
  • Using EPA-approved chemical disinfectants for cleaning countertops and surfaces
  • Thoroughly sterilizing equipment before and after each use

Our team is dedicated to ensuring your sense of security and comfort. We’re sure you’ll find our staff actively adhering to these health regulations during your time in our care. 

During procedures and exams, all clinical staff wear disposable gloves and masks. And every exam room undergoes comprehensive cleaning before, during, and after your visit. While many materials used in exams and procedures are disposable, non-disposable instruments are meticulously sterilized, packaged and securely stored.

Our sterilization protocol for non-disposable materials includes:

  1. A thorough cleaning of all instruments with ultrasonic cleaners that eliminate all bacteria, germs and debris.
  2. Clean instruments are securely wrapped in FDA-compliant packaging before undergoing sterilization
  3. After proper packaging, instruments are safely sterilized using FDA-approved dental autoclave sterilizers
  4. After visits, our machines and surfaces are meticulously disinfected using EPA-approved
