Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Dr. Bauer or Dr. Nemcik 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 countertops and surfaces
- Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure.
A hundred thousand welcomes!
