Keeping our patients safe and healthy is our top priority at Pottstown Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Our infection control and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike, and we take this very seriously. The cornerstone of a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust, so please feel free to come to us with any questions or concerns.
What We Do
Our team follows 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 include:
- Using disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
We use an autoclave to sterilize all our reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. The device kills bacteria and viruses using steam, heat, and pressure.
