Dental Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control.  The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with our doctors. 

Our office 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
  • Chemical disinfection of counter tops and surfaces
  • Steam autoclave sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials
  • Special disposal of all medical waste
