Infection Control

My goal is for you to experience a safe and comfortable experience in our dental practice. To this end, we have made state-of-the-art infection control procedures a top priority. Every non-disposable dental instrument that we use is carefully cleaned, bagged, sealed and sterilized in our two steam autoclaves. We also use many single use, disposable instruments for your further protection. We use protective, disposable plastic barriers to cover instruments and equipment that we touch in our treatment rooms. All of our exposed counters and equipment in our treatment rooms are thoroughly wiped and disinfected with an FDA approved surface disinfectant after each patient use. We thoroughly wash our hands before and after treating each patient and always change our gloves for each individual patient. Any water that is used in your mouth or in our dental drills is distilled in our office and all of our water lines are cleaned and disinfected with solutions to remove any build up of bacteria biofilm. Your safety and protection will continue to be a major concern for our dental team.

Please contact Dr. Thomas J. Strub for more information, or to schedule an appointment. We will be happy to speak with you and answer any questions you may have.
