We practice all CDC and OSHA standards of infection control daily, even prior to this virus. We treat everything to the highest standards for our patients and employee’s safety. Every instrument used in your mouth is sterilized. Items that cannot be sterilized are disposable. We use hospital-level disinfection in all areas in our office to destroy pathogens, and our team is highly trained in these protocols.
We’ve implemented some extra precautions in addition to the universal precautions we take to protect your health.
