Infection control and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is utmost attention to proper infection control protocols. Our office follows procedures recommended by provincial and federal agencies. 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 (drills). We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. Please feel free to discuss this topic with Drs.
