Infection control and universal precautions are in place to protect the patients, the staff and the doctor alike. Everyone can benefit from these procedures which foster a safe dental practice and are required by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The required measures include…
- Disinfecting hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfectant of all counters and hard surfaces
- Sterilization of all dental instruments
- Using disposable materials
We use a chemiclave, a KavoClave and an autoclave to sterilize all reusable instruments to ensure the highest standard of infection control.
