Infection prevention measures and general safety precautions are used to protect both clients and personnel. Everyone benefits from infection control, including you, your dentist, and the dental staff. An efficient and secure dental practice is built on the idea of trust. Feel free to talk about this with Dr. Michael Sherman and the Silver Mountain Dental team, and you'll get an open and sincere response.
Dr. Michael Sherman and the entire team adhere to protocols recommended by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (CDC). Among the measures are:
Dental handpieces and other reusable equipment are all sterilized. We use an autoclave to kill bacteria and viruses by combining steam, heat, and pressure.
The most effective tool against illness is knowledge. The more knowledge you possess, the more equipped you will be to decide on your medical care. If you are familiar with our routine procedures and policies, you will feel more at ease.
