Infection controls and universal precautions protect both clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone of a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with our doctors and receive a straightforward answer.

Dr. Braverman 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:

  • Thorough hand washing
  • Gloves and face masks
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam 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.
