Everyone benefits from rigorous precautions against infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
Drs. Wonder and Price and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Health Administration 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 countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
