Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Rogers.
Dr. Rogers and our entire team follow procedures recommended by the California Dental Board and several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:
- Disinfectant hand soap and hand sanitizers
- 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 using an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
