It’s finally done! Because CEREC took over our old sterilization area, we needed to find a new place for it and since we were moving it anyway, we figured we’d make it the best darn sterilization center ever! For 2 years we limped along with 40 sq. feet of workspace and now we are rocking 160 sq. feet of sterilization awesomeness! With 2 Midmark M11 Autoclaves and 2 SciCan Statim Autoclaves, we’ve doubled our instrument sterilization capacity. The increased counter space allows for better workflow and the varying counter heights has improved ergonomics. Finally, moving sterilization to an enclosed space has decreased the ambient noise making patient visits more peaceful.
Thank you to all those who helped and put in the long hours to get this project done. Also, a very big thank you to all the patients that had appointments during the remodel for putting up with all the noise!
