At Sherbourne Dental Associates, strict sterililization and cleanliness are top priority.

Infection Control and Prevention Toronto


All instruments are enclosed in stainless steel kits – wrapped and sterilized after each patient use. Sterilized kits are only unwrapped prior to patient use in front of each patient.

After a kit is used, it is taken to the sterilization bay (in a locked kit).

All instruments are cleaned and placed in a washer (Scican Hydrim Instrument Washer) to be cleaned and dried.

Then the kits are wrapped and placed in an autoclave to be sterilized.

Once sterilized, instruments are placed in a sterile cabinet until ready to be used. Each kit also has a sterilization indicator which verifies the kit and instruments are sterilized. All info is logged digitally and kept on file.

All other sterilization policies are followed: PPE, hand washing stations, eye wash station, antibacterial hand rub in each op and at all entrances of the office.
