Infection Control

At Care First Dental Team, we take infection control very seriously. Your health and safety are our highest priority. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has developed special recommendations for use in dental offices which we strictly adhere to. Before our patients enter their treatment room, all surfaces such as the dental chair, light, drawer handles and countertops, have been thoroughly cleaned and decontaminated. We also take the additional step to cover equipment with protective barriers, which are replaced after each patient.

Non-disposable items, like the dental tools, are cleaned between patients in what’s called an autoclave. The autoclave uses steam at a high level of pressure to sterilize (destroy all pathogens) dental tools used. Disposable dental tools and needles are never reused on another patient. Infection control precautions also require all dental staff involved in patient care to use appropriate protective barriers such as gloves, masks, and eyewear. After each patient, disposable wear such as gloves are thrown away. Before seeing the next patient, the members of the treatment team wash their hands, and put on a new pair of gloves.

Your well-being is what is most important to us. That’s why infection control procedures are a strict non-negotiable at our office where you can expect that perfection is met without fail every time.
