Infection Control in the Dental Office

Filed under: General — admin @ 12:59 pm

There are many steps that the office of Drs. Leff, Weiss, Waldee and
Associates take to prevent the spread of infection. We follow the
guidelines for infection-control issued by the Center of Disease Control
and Prevention.
Handwashing & Using Gloves – The doctors, dental assistants and dental
hygienists wash their hands and put on fresh gloves before starting
all treatments.
Protective Clothing – The doctors, dental assistants and dental hygienists
wear protective clothing such as face shields, eye goggles, masks and
lab jackets while they provide treatment.

Dental Hand Pieces
– All dental hand pieces and instruments are disinfected
and heat sterilized after each use.
Disposable Items – Many of our dental materials such as gloves, masks, wipes,
suction/water tube tips, needles and scalpel blades are used only once
and then disposed of in order to maintain a clean and safe office.
Waste Materials – Needles and other sharp items are disposed of in special
puncture-proof containers. Other contaminated waste is disposed of in
special bags.
All patients should take notice of the above precautions we take at the office
of Drs. Leff, Weiss, Waldee and Associate when they come in for their
dental appointments!
