About Best Patient Safety

Learn who Best Patient Safety are and what we can do for you as a dental practice or patient.

Best Patient Safety wants you to know that when you visit the dental office it is one of the safest places you’ll be going for any type of health care. To that end, we’ve created a list of standards and procedures for practices that go above and beyond what regulatory bodies recommend, and a directory of dentists who agree to comply with those standards.

“You should always feel comfortable going to the dentist. Now you can.”

We have done extensive research on patient safety and used a team of advisors—professionals in dentistry and in sterilization and infection control—to create a set of protocols and standards, ensuring that the dental practices are utilizing the best possible protection equipment, sterilization procedures and technology available.

We also want you to know which practices meet these standards we’ve set and are willing to comply by them to make your dental visit as safe as possible.

Also, many of practices employ technology that makes it possible for you to reduce the amount of time in the dental chair as well as the number of visits it takes to complete your treatment. By combining technology that reduces your chairtime and uses the latest safety protocols, you’re assured of the safest possible dental visit.

That’s why we say, “The safest care with less time in the chair.”
