Infection Control

Auburn Dentist

Our priority as your dental care provider has always been to preserve and protect your health and safety. As usual, we continue to follow all guidelines set forth by OSHA and the ADA in order to provide a clean, safe, environment in which to protect your health, both oral and otherwise. We are in this together.  

Among our precautionary measures include…

Air Filtration System
We have installed Jade SCA5000C Air Purification Systems in every operatory. The Jade SCA5000C Air Purification System is among the most advanced and effective air purification system on the market today. It filters the air using HEPA filters (remove particles), carbon filters (absorbs odors and gases) plus UV light technology (kills airborne pathogens). It is designed to clean and sterilize indoor air in hospitals, medical labs, and dental clinics.

Hand Hygiene
Proper handwashing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings.

Personal Protective Equipment
We possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, gloves, protective eyewear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents. 

Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and Devices
Instruments and equipment used in your care are all regularly sterilized and disinfected to ensure that your health is maintained. Items such as surgical instruments and mouth mirrors are all subject to rigorous cleanings. 

Our team makes use of antimicrobial solutions to wipe out biofilms, including bacteria and viruses in our dental delivery units. This antimicrobial agent helps to ensure our equipment is kept sanitary at all times.

Regular Sanitation:
Common touchpoints, including seating, workspaces, door handles, railings, and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill viruses. 

Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in our team. Together, we can overcome these circumstances and continue your path to greater health. We look forward to taking care of you at your next appointment and wish you and your family the very best.
