Operatories

Equipment
At SKH Dentistry, located in Kitchener, ON, our operatories are outfitted with the latest in dental equipment.

A soothing colour palette and plush treatment chairs combine to create a focus on patient comfort.

The atmosphere is further complemented by modern dental handpieces, curing lights for white fillings, digital x-rays and intra-oral cameras which allow us to provide optimal treatment for our clients.



Technology
Technology has had an amazing impact on our ability to provide treatment to our clients in a comfortable, sterile manner.

Our desire is to use all of our available resources to educate patients and to contribute to their decision making process regarding treatment alternatives:

  • Computer monitors are installed in every operatory to facilitate viewing of digital x-rays and intra-oral photographs.
  • Digital x-rays provide a superior image of the teeth with up to 90% less radiation to the patient.
  • Computer software technology empowers us to enlarge or change the contrast of x-rays to enhance accuracy in reading x-rays and associated diagnoses.
  • Intra-oral photographs are valuable for diagnosis as we are able to magnify our view of oral conditions on the computer monitor.
  • By utilizing the most modern technology in endodontic(root canal) treatment system, we are able to complete endodontic treatment most often in one appointment with comfort and increased predictability.


    Sterilization
  • All of the instruments used during patient treatment are cleaned and sterilized, according to the guidelines from the Royal College of Dental Surgeons for Ontario.  All of the instruments used for patient treatment are wrapped or packaged with internal monitors for each set of instruments, to indicate that each set has been properly processed.  The instruments are placed in sealed packages to protect the sterility of the instruments until they are opened at the time your treatment begins.  Our sterilizers are tested for effectiveness on a daily basis, according to the Public Health Ontario IPAC guidelines.
  • If you ever have any questions regarding the safety protocols we follow to protect you, please let us know.  We are happy to discuss these issues with you and show you how we sterilize our instruments.
