Infection controls and universal precautions protect our patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Fisch, Dr. Mizraji & Dr. Sastiel and receive a straightforward answer.
Drs. Fisch, Mizraji & Sastiel 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:
- 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 handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses using steam, heat and pressure.
The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. If you have any questions or concerns about our infection control policies and procedures, please call us at Ventura Office Location Phone Number 805-653-5606.
