You may not realize what preparations are made before your dental visit. Our dental office adheres to CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) guidelines to ensure proper infection control for you and our team. Some examples of the precautions taken to ensure your health and safety are the use of disposable products that are discarded after a single use, reusable instruments that are sterilized to the standard put forth by OSHA involving heat and pressure to eradicate germs, and all operatory surfaces are carefully disinfected with a hospital grade germicide to prevent cross-contamination from patient to patient. Practitioners wear disposable gloves, masks and protective eyewear during dental procedures for your protection and our staff. If you have any questions about our infection control procedures, we invite to discuss them with us.
