Dr. Pettengill was very instrumental in developing all policies for sterilization methods in a hospital-based dental center, a standard required not only by OSHA and the Department of Health, but also by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Hospital Organizations (JCAHO). This is an exceptional asset of which we are so proud since hospitals are typically held to a higher standard than most dental centers. Please feel free to ask us about our methods when you visit.
