We have carefully arranged our office to create a culture of safety for our patients. How do we do this? Daily doctor/staff meetings keep everyone on the same page and allow our highly qualified personnel to do their best work. This facilitates effective teamwork, good communication among the team and with patients, and a willingness to help patients with their unique and individual needs. Each person understands their own responsibilities and those of the other team members. Each person is responsible to make sure proper sterile technique is followed--everything that touches the patient is either disposable or autoclaved. A comprehensive emergency cart is available for medical emergencies. We have our own automated external defibrillator and are trained to use it. From the waiting room, to the front desk, through the treatment rooms, and in our prosthetic laboratories, special care is taken to assure patient safety.
