Clients and employees are both protected by infection controls and universal safeguards. Infection prevention is beneficial to everyone, including you, your dentist, and the dental team. The concept of trust is the cornerstone of an effective and safe dental practice. You should feel free to discuss this with our dentists and the Silver Stream Dental staff and receive an honest response.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) all propose protocols that our dentists and entire team follow (CDC). Among the measures are:
All reusable equipment, including dental handpieces, is sterilized. We employ an autoclave, which combines steam, heat, and pressure to destroy germs and viruses.
Information is the finest weapon against sickness. The more information you have, the more prepared you will be to make informed decisions regarding your health care. You will feel more at ease if you are familiar with our everyday operations and policies.
