Our dental office in Sammamish employs infection control procedures and universal precautions to 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. Quickstad or Dr. Wang and receive a straightforward answer.
Drs. Quickstad and Wang, and our entire disinfection and equipment sterilization team in Sammamish 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). The measures used by our Sammamish infection control team include:
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
The best defense against disease is information. Our Sammamish infection control team can help you to be better equipped to make wise decisions about your dental health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
