Infection Control

Our practice undertakes industry best-in-class infection prevention and control measures, and we strongly believe that with sufficient protective measures in place, a dental practice represents a safe and low-risk environment for our patients.

• Observe meticulous hand hygiene practices throughout the day and hand washing before putting on PPE or handling anything that the patient may handle

• Wear appropriate personal protective equipment during the appointment and interactions with patients and their environment, such as gloves, mask, eye protection, and gowns, as required

Between patient visits, we:

• Clean, disinfect and sterilize all instruments

• Wipe all operatory surfaces with disinfectant

In the reception area, we:

• Disinfect all counters and surfaces

• Make antibacterial hand rub available At least daily, we:

• Empty standard garbage receptacles and change liners • Clean floors (vacuum/dry mop and wet mop)
