Our Infection Control Protocol
Information about infection control at Bobinski Dental.
Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and team members alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control—you, Dr. Margaret Bobinski, and the dental team. Furthermore, the cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust, and you should feel free to discuss infection control with Dr. Margaret Bobinski and receive straightforward answers.
Bobinski Dental follows procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Our infection control measures include:
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Finally, we use disposable materials whenever possible
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure.
The best defense against disease is information. Then, the more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. In addition, the more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
