Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and employees alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control: you, your dentist, and the dental team. If you have any questions about our infection control procedures, please ask.
The doctors and our entire team consistently follow infection control procedures recommended by several federal agencies: Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). All employees have been trained in these procedures and understand the importance of adhering to safety measures including:
- Disposable gowns, gloves, and face masks
- Eye protection
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all instruments and drill hand pieces before every use
- Disposable materials
