Infection Control

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and clinicians, alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with any member of our team and receive a straightforward answer.

Our Doctors here at Key Dental Group and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies, including 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

Sterilization of all equipment in between every use

Disposable materials

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces with an autoclave, which is a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
