O Dental employs very strict sterilization and cleaning procedures in order to ensure that our office exceeds all health regulations and remains a safe and clean place for our patients. We are committed to providing the highest quality care possible in all aspects of our practice. For more information about infection control in South Orange County, and to schedule an appointment with our dentist, Dr. Anmar Obaidi, please call our office at 949-487-6780.
At O Dental, we follow the extensive infection control recommendations outlined by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). In fact, we go above and beyond many of these requirements because we are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of our patients, as well as our team.
These infection control and safety measures include:
- Eye protection for patients and team members
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
In addition, Dr. Obaidi and our team of dental professionals sterilize all reusable equipment after each use, including handpieces. We use an autoclave, which a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure. When possible, we use disposable materials and tools to eliminate the risk of cross-contamination through reuse.
Your health and comfort are our top priorities, and you can rest assured that we take all of the necessary steps to protect you and your family while you are with us. We welcome you to contact our office today to learn more about infection control and safety, and to schedule your next visit with Dr. Obaidi. We look forward to caring for you!
