Teeth Health and Safety Orange County

Our office strictly meets or exceeds the safety and sterilization guidelines recommended by the American Dental Association, California Dental Board and OSHA. We constantly upgrade our infection control techniques by attending frequent courses and holding regular staff meetings so as to insure your safety and peace of mind.

Some of the techniques we employ include:

  • Wearing gloves, masks, and protective eyewear during each patient examination and treatment
  • Sterilizing all instruments placed intra-orally in an autoclave and ultrasonic cleaner for germ free use
  • Cleaning and sanitizing each exam room fixture following each patient visit to eliminate bacteria and its development
  • Consistently using a contracted sterilization monitoring service to ensure the effectiveness of equipment
  • Utilizing safety techniques to prevent cross-contamination by properly disposing of all products that are unable to be sterilized
  • Sterilization of all dental hand-pieces
  • Covering patient chairs, x-ray units, and light handles with disposable plastic wraps
  • Using filtered, bottled water supplied to dental hand-pieces and air/water syringes
