Infection Control

Skokie, IL Dentist

Our priority as your dental care provider has always been to preserve and protect the health and safety of our patients and team members. As usual, we continue to follow all guidelines set forth by OSHA, the CDC, and the ADA in order to provide a clean, sterile, and safe environment in which to protect your health.  We are in this together. 

Among our precautionary measures include…

Hand Hygiene

Proper hand-washing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings.

Patient Safety

To start your appointment, we will take your temperature. We will also request that you use hand sanitizer or wash your hands before being seated in the treatment room. In addition, we will require you to do a pre-rinse of 1.5% hydrogen peroxide before any treatment begins as well as an after-treatment rinse.

Personal Protective Equipment

We possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, gloves, protective eye-wear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents. 

Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and Devices

We have a dedicated infection control and sterilization specialist. Instruments and equipment used in your care are all regularly sterilized and disinfected to ensure that your health is maintained. Items such as surgical instruments and mouth mirrors are all subject to rigorous cleanings. 

The Use of Ozonated Water

Our team makes use of ozonated water to wipe out biofilms, including bacteria and viruses in our dental delivery units. This equipment is also used as a pre-rinse for all patients. 100x more potent than bleach, this antimicrobial agent helps to ensure our equipment is kept sanitary at all times.  

Regular Sanitation:

Common touch-points, including seating, work-spaces, door handles, railings, and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill viruses. 

Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in our team. Together, we can overcome these circumstances and continue your path to greater health. We look forward to taking care of you at your next appointment and wish you and your family the very best.
