Infection Control

French Dental Clinic is committed to providing the highest quality of care for our patients. One important aspect of this is maintaining a safe and clean environment through effective infection control and sterilization protocols.

At French Dental Clinic, we understand the importance of preventing the spread of infection and disease, and we take this responsibility seriously. Our infection control and sterilization protocols are in line with the guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association (ADA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

One of the key components of our infection control protocol is the use of personal protective equipment (PPE) for both our dental staff and patients. Our staff is trained in the proper use and disposal of PPE, including gloves, masks, gowns, and eye protection. Additionally, our staff is trained in good hand hygiene practices and they are required to wash their hands before and after treating each patient.

We also take great care to ensure that our equipment and surfaces are properly cleaned and disinfected. This includes items such as dental chairs, instruments, and countertops. We use only the highest-quality cleaning and disinfecting agents, and we follow the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

Sterilization is also a crucial part of our infection control protocol. All instruments and equipment that come into contact with patients’ mouths are properly sterilized before use. This is done through methods such as autoclaving or chemical sterilization.

In addition to these practices, French Dental Clinic has a written infection control and sterilization protocol in place, which is reviewed and updated regularly. Our staff is trained in this protocol and are held accountable to follow it.

Lastly, we regularly monitor and test our sterilization equipment and processes to ensure that they are working properly and effectively.

At French Dental Clinic, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care for our patients. Our infection control and sterilization protocols are an important part of this commitment, and we take great care to ensure that they are effective and in line with the latest guidelines.
