Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Tabibi and receive a straightforward answer.
Dr. Tabibi and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:
- Use of Strisil System, with Bacterial Prevention Product Line. Sterisil system kills existing odor-causing bacteria and also prevents odor-causing biofilm form growing in first place. Sterisil continuously disinfects and maintains dental waterlines, ensuring American Dental Association and California Dental Association compliance.
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
