Hygiene at Our Practice
Our dental Practice is known for its elevated hygiene standards. The office is dedicated to maintaining a clean, safe and healthy environment for both patients and staff. This is evident in the many measures we have implemented to ensure the highest level of cleanliness and safety.
One of the key areas in which Dr. Shore’s office excels is in infection control. The office follows strict guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. This includes the use of personal protective equipment, regular disinfection of surfaces, and strict sterilization protocols for instruments and equipment.
The office also uses state-of-the-art technology to enhance their hygiene standards. For example, we use digital radiography which reduces the need for traditional x-ray films and eliminates the need for chemicals used to process them. We also use a special dental waterline purification system that ensures that the water used during treatment is clean and safe for patients.
In addition to the technical measures, the office also has a strict schedule of cleaning and disinfection. The office is cleaned and disinfected multiple times a day, with special attention given to high-touch areas. The office also provides hand sanitizer and encourages patients to use it.
Dr. Shore and her team are happy to share the hygiene practices in the office with patients. Whenever asked, we provide information about the measures we take to ensure a clean and safe environment, and encourage patients to ask any questions.
We consider our Practice as an example of how dental practices can prioritize hygiene and safety. Our strict adherence to guidelines and regular cleaning and disinfection protocols ensure that patients receive care in a clean, safe and healthy environment.
