We feel patient education is very important. At Kawata Dental, we take the time to thoroughly discuss treatment options with you.
Our goal is that you are completely informed concerning your condition and any treatment that will be performed. We encourage you to voice any questions you may have.
We adhere to the highest professional standards of cleanliness, sterilization, and radiation control. Our japanese - american staff regularly attend safety seminars and are quite knowledgeable on the latest techniques.
We know that preventing the spread of infectious diseases such as AIDS, herpes, hepatitis and even the cold virus is critical. We use extensive sterilization procedures, going well beyond the guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control.
We use barrier techniques such as disposable masks and gloves and replace them with every new patient. Each piece of fixed operatory equipment is wiped-down with antibacterial solution prior to every clinical procedure. Sterile water delivery systems are utilized. We use autoclave sterilization for all instruments prior to dental examination and treatment. You can be assured that our japanese-american staff have been specifically trained on sterilization procedures and their importance.
Patients with certain medical conditions (e.g. valvular heart conditions and artificial joints) may be asked to pre-medicate with antibiotics prior to certain treatments. We do this with your safety in mind. Please inform us if you have a condition that might require pre-medication.
We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure our patients are as comfortable as possible during dental procedures.
