What about Infection Control
Reducing the chance of spreading infectious diseases has always been the "highest priority" of the
dental profession. Our office uses comprehensive infection control procedures which comply with, and
exceed the "universal precautions" set and regulated by government and professional agencies. We
routinely monitor our infection control policies and ensure that upgrade to material and equipment,
as well as training in their use, is an on going process.
Many of our control procedures are visible; gloved hands, protective masks and eyewear and freshly
laundered uniforms. What may not be visible to our patients is the sophisticated state-of-the-art
sterilization of all instruments, including hand pieces, disinfection of all surfaces, and disposal
of contaminated waste into special containers which are then discarded according to government regulations.
We used disposable instruments as much as possible. Each non-disposable instruments used for treatment
has been carefully rinsed, scrubbed, dried, packaged and sealed before high heated and pressurized
sterilization. To reassure your safety, all the sterilized instrument are only unwrapped after you are
seated. Your treatment room has also been prepared just for you. Every touchable surface has been scrubbed,
sprayed, and wiped down with a disinfectant in accordance with OSHA and CDC (Center for Disease Control)
specifications, eliminating any chance of cross-contamination.
