Most of us do not think about getting sick after going to the dentist; the problem is that any health facility can have germs that cause infections. At Sam Muslin DDS, one of our main goals is to provide patients with ultra clean environment and safest dental care possible. Our high-tech equipment and the best in dental care safety sets our office apart as one of the safest in the world.
The latest dental equipment not only helps Dr. Muslin deliver treatment with the greatest of speeds, but they also protect our patients against hazardous contamination. The average dental drill sucks in saliva or blood from a patient's mouth when the dentist takes his foot off of the pedal. Our equipment actually pushes water and air out of the dental drill when the dentist removes his foot from the pedal, thereby eliminating risks of cross contamination between patients.
Our individual dental care rooms provide privacy, clean air and greatly reduce the risk of airborne pathogens, such as tuberculosis, colds, viruses and bacteria that cause diseases. Private rooms provide the best dental office safety over open air dental office designs.
Each treatment room is equipped with electronically purified air systems that remove airborne contaminants. The customized air conditioning system has a separate room-intake-duct, which pushes air into our private rooms and another duct that removes air at the same time. The two levels of electronic air purification provide safe and clean air, which exceeds the standards of normal dental equipment safety requirements.
The walls are lead-lined to protect our patients from radiation that spreads from other treatment rooms. Our x-ray equipment is also designed to reduce scatter radiation by moving the focal point of the x-ray beam to the rear of the x-ray head. The margin of safety is increased with high tech dental x-ray machines that expose us to the least amount of radiation, combined with lead-lined treatment room walls.
Sorry, we know this is not a dental safety feature, but it is a first class way to entertain yourself while you are receiving your high tech dental care in a private treatment room. We found that our dental patients are less nervous with a pair of headphones and the remote control right in their hands.
For the ultimate patient comfort, sliding glass doors offer privacy and peace and quiet. The doors divide the dental care rooms from the noise and pollutants from outside the office. High tech dental office safety is enhanced with dental room doors that do not have to be touched to open and closed.
Bacteria build up in the treatment room water lines over time and patients can be exposed to this bacterial build-up in dental offices when being treated. Our treatment room plumbing is designed to eliminate this exposure with independent distilled water systems that protect our patients. As an additional level of protection, the distilled water is also treated by an antibacterial system in every dental care room. Bacteria in the water lines are no longer a problem or a risk to the patient. The best dental office safety involves protecting the patient in every way possible.
The best of patient safety comes with sterilization rather than disinfection. Instead of just wiping down our dental instruments, we sterilize every instrument and each handpiece (drills) every time, for every patient and for every procedure. Sterilization involves high temperature and high-pressure equipment to eliminate bacteria.
Every dental care room in this office has high-tech magnified camera systems to allow the dentist to see problems while they are still small and easily treated. The quality of the dental care increases and the diagnostic ability of the dentist increases with the utilization of magnified camera systems. With the teeth magnified 26 times, this dentist has superior vision and decay or cracked teeth can be diagnosed early on. Every camera system also has a plastic barrier that is removed every time and for every patient.
A top quality dental staff produces the best and the safest level of care. Our experienced staff helps provide integrated care with the latest in high-tech dentistry to produce the type of quality that can be seen in the before and after photos of cosmetic dentistry. The staff is a very important element in the quality and safety of patient care. The skills of the dentist are an absolute necessity for successful treatment.
For those patients interested in the finest level of dental health care possible and want treatment that is organized, quick and skillfully administered, please call Sam Muslin, D.D.S., M.A.G.D., for a consultation.
