|Digital technology has changed the way we look at the world. And for dentists - it's changing the way we look at X- rays! With this digital X- rays technology , we can reduce the radiation up to 70% comparing to the conventional X - rays film technique. This elminantes film processing and get radiograph results instantly on computer monitor. Once X - ray image is stored in a computers' database and saved in a patient's computer file. If a copy is desired , a print - out or electronic mail can transfer the image. That's the great advantage to digital X - rays.|
- At Far East Dental, the protection of our patients, staff, and doctors is our number one priority. We always use face masks, gloves, eyewear and coats in order to prevent the spread of germs. Once sterilized, instruments are kept in sealed packages until they are used on the next patient.
- Our sterilization department follows the mandatory recommendations of the American Dental Association and utilizes two different types of sterilization machines -- ultra high dry heat and ultra high steam heat -- to sterilize all the hand and oral instruments used. The ultra high temperatures destroy all viruses and bacteria. After use, the instruments are scrubbed and/or rinsed and put into an ultrasonic cleaning sink; they are then dried and checked. Next they are packaged (as needed) and sent through one of our two different types of sterilizers. The instruments are kept packaged until they are needed for the next patient.
- Each machine is tested routinely by professional engineer and checked at each cycle. In addition, all sterilization bags change color when sterilization is achieved. Every room is regularly disinfected between patients' appointments.
