Today, safety is on everyone's mind. Your health and safety are Commerce Park Children's Dentistry & Orthodontics' number one priority. We use "universal precautions" for the treatment of all our patients. This means that we use the same infection control methods for each patient. These include barrier controls recommended by OSHA - the Occupational Safety and Health Administration - gloves, gowns, masks and protective eyewear. All instruments are scrubbed and dry or steam heat sterilization is used for all instruments after each patient, killing all pathogens (germs). Our instruments are bagged individually prior to sterilization in heat-sealed packages and opened just prior to use. Disposables are used whenever possible and are discarded after use. Disinfectants are applied to chairs, countertops and other surface areas in all treatment rooms after each patient use. Other precautions include the proper disposal of sharp items and contaminated material. We operate an on-premises washer and dryer to ensure clean uniforms that meet all OSHA regulations.
Commerce Park Children's Dentistry & Orthodontics' infection control system has been thoroughly designed to provide you with a safe, comfortable dental environment. Staff members are also thoroughly trained in infection control procedures and are constantly updated as new techniques evolve. Our Doctors and staff attend infection control seminars on an ongoing basis and our "in house" OSHA team monitors that all standards are constantly being met.
Our entire clinical staff is CPR certified and updates their certification on an annual basis.
We are very proud of our infection control and safety programs and are happy to discuss them with you. Please feel free to ask any questions or ask for a tour of our facilities to see them in action. You'll see how hard we strive to provide you with the highest quality services in a safe and comfortable environment!
