Everyone – patients and staff alike – benefits from rigorous infection control protocols. At Brookside Dental Care, we take great measures to ensure a hygienic and safe dental care environment. We sterilize all reusable equipment and we use an autoclave, which kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. Dr. Hadian and the Brookside team also diligently 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 antibacterial hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
Please don’t hesitate to ask us questions. The best defense against disease is information. The more you know about our daily practices and policies, the more comfortable and safe you will feel. To learn more, call Brookside Dental Care today, (610) 624-6070.
