Infection Control

Great precautions are taken to protect every patient with strict infection control protocols. All staff members use standard infection controls and sanity practices to keep the office a clean and safe environment. The office complies with Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

General practices include disinfectant hand soap, gloves, mask, clean countertops, individually wrapped instrument cassettes, etc. All reusable equipment and instruments are sterilized with an autoclave machine, which is a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure and is considered the best infection control practice. When available, disposable materials are used to avoid cross-contamination.
