Le & Savko Dental Infection Control

Hand Washing

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and our team alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, the dentists, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust.  We want you to feel free to discuss this topic with any member of our team and be confidant that you will receive a straightforward answer.

Dr. Le and Dr. Savko along with the 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:

  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Gloves and face masks 
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

Autoclave MachineWe sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces with the use of an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. We believe the more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel. Please do not hesitate to ask questions, we will be happy to answer them for you.
