Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust.

Our entire team follows procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:

Disinfectant hand soap

Gloves and face masks

Disposable materials

Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces

Sterilization of all equipment before every use

Purified water system to prevent waterline contamination

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces by using an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
