Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients 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. Holloway and receive a straightforward answer.

Dr. Holloway 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:

Not all dental offices approach infection control in the same manner.  We’ve made a commitment to our patients as well as our team’s overall health by investing in our infection prevention procedures by joining an exclusive program for dental practices called GREENLIGHT. This resource keeps us on track with everything we need to do to keep our office up-to-date on the latest information from our regulatory bodies, including the CDC, OSHA, and state dental boards. So as soon as anything changes, we know exactly what we need to do to be in compliance..

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.  Feel free to stop by our clinic to schedule a tour or call us if you have any questions about our infection control practices/policies prior to or after your visit!
