We practice ongoing and rigorous dental hygiene at our practice in your interest, and also according to the rules as set out by federal agencies like the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our whole staff, including Dr. Stark and Dr. Garagozloo, live out the regulations of these institutions as habit.
It is very important to us that you have trust in how we go about our work, and when you come to see us, you will be able to see that we are careful with how we treat you not only as an individual, but also when it comes to hygiene. You will for instance see that we use disinfectant hand soap, gloves and face masks and, in some instances, disposable materials. We chemically disinfect countertops and other surfaces and sterilize all reusable equipment (including hand dental pieces) before every use, using an autoclave – a device that kills both bacteria and viruses through heat, steam and pressure.
Your trust is of utmost importance to us and we want you to be able to have a smile on your face not only because we have helped you through attending to your physical dental needs, but also because you knew you were safe in our environment!
