Infection Control Procedures ensure your safety, and all procedures at our office exceed even the most stringent guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA).
All instruments and hand pieces are autoclave steam sterilized after every use and disposable items are utilized wherever appropriate. Patients and staff wear protective safety glasses during treatment. Disposable gloves are worn while treating patients and are never used on more than one patient. Staff members wear masks during the procedures to protect our patients.
All areas that are touched during the procedures are covered with a plastic wrap and changed after each patient so as to eliminate the potential of cross contamination. All surfaces, chairs, lights and units are thoroughly disinfected with a chemical solution formulated to kill infectious bacteria, spores, and viruses before and after every patient use.
At Lakewood Dental, our team members undergo extensive training in sterilization procedures and participate in continuing education courses to keep up-to-date on the most advanced techniques in the industry.
