Is it sanitary to have a house call dental visit?
Some dental offices do in-house testing, but Smiles by Delivery takes it one step further to protect our patients. We choose to have our autoclaves checked weekly by a third party infection control company. If you are worried about saliva a splatter, again, we have our unit in a controlled setting and use our hospital grade cleaners….so now think about all the times residents and neighbors are coughing and sneezing….and not cleaning up after they disperse germs!
