Infection Control Methods and Precautions

While many things have changed for us, one thing remains the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority in our practice. Our infection control protocols and systems are designed to provide dental care that is safe, efficient, and comfortable.

In our practice we follow infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We regularly monitor activities of these agencies and keep up-to-date on all new rulings or guidance that may be issued. The infection control procedures in our office are current and adhere to each of these safety recommendations.

  • We have incorporated Covid-19 standard PPE into our clinical systems and protocols including N95/KN95 masks, face shields, gloves and lab coats as best prescribed for each clinical procedure.
  • We have always utilized state of the art medical grade sterilization equipment and protocols.
  • We have invested in equipment to reduce aerosols in the clinical area and treatment rooms.
  • Complete disinfection of treatment rooms between each patient is already standard in our office.

We are grateful to have you as a patient in our practice. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to establishing a new normal in our practice. The CDC has recognized that infection control standards in a dental office are safer than many other places you may visit such as a grocery store, pharmacy, or restaurant for take-out. If you have any questions or concerns please ask us in the office when you are here, or give us a call any time at (978) 851-7112
