Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Drs. Lurie, Segall, Greenspoon, and Singer .
Our entire dental 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:
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Disposable materials
- Disinfectant hand soap and sanitizer
