Patients’ Safety is Our Top Priority
Rigorous Infection Control
Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — patients, our dentists, and the entirety of our team. The cornerstone of a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You can feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Yoo and receive a straightforward answer.
Dr. Yoo and our entire team follow procedures recommended by 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
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of counter-tops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
We thoroughly sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure. We never compromise the safety of our patients and staff for anything.
The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health. If you have any questions, feel free to ask us. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
