Infection Control

Dentist in Norman, OK

Our priority as your dental care provider has always been to preserve and protect your health and safety. As usual, we continue to follow all guidelines set forth by OSHA and the ADA in order to provide a clean, safe, environment in which to protect your health, both oral and otherwise. We are in this together. 


Among our precautionary measures include… 

Hand Hygiene Proper handwashing is one of the most important measures our team takes to prevent the spread of infection. For routine dental exams and nonsurgical procedures, we wash thoroughly with water and hand soap specifically created for healthcare settings. 

Personal Protective Equipment We possess and use all necessary protective equipment, including face masks, gloves, protective eyewear, and protective clothing. Worn by our team and changed regularly, Personal Protective Equipment is designed to protect everyone in our practice from exposure to infectious agents. 

Sterilization and Disinfection of Patient-Care Items and Devices Instruments and equipment used in your care are all regularly sterilized and disinfected to ensure that your health is maintained. Items such as surgical instruments and mouth mirrors are all subject to rigorous cleanings. 

The Use of Extraoral Dental Suction System to Minimize Aerosols One of the ways that we maintain the safest and most hygienic environment possible is our use of suction in reducing aerosols and preventing your exposure to contaminants. Aerosols can present themselves when performing dental procedures with high-speed hand-pieces, ultrasonic scalers, or other instruments, and we manage these aerosols to provide a healthy, clean treatment process for our patients. 

Regular Sanitation: Common touchpoints, including seating, workspaces, door handles, railings, and restrooms are sanitized on a regular basis by our team with effective cleaning solutions certified to kill viruses. 


Thank you for your continued trust and confidence in our team. Together, we can overcome these circumstances and continue your path to greater health. We look forward to taking care of you at your next appointment and wish you and your family the very best.
