Infection Control Protocols

Infection Control Protocols

At South Peek Dental Care, the health, safety, and well-being of our patients are of the utmost importance to us. We comply with the evidenced-based guidelines set forth by the American Dental Association, Texas State Dental Board, and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Standard precautions are aimed to help with infection control practices, both to protect the spreading of infections among the dental team and patients.

Standard Precautions include:

  1. Hand hygiene
  2. Use of personal protective equipment (i.e. gloves, masks, eyewear)
  3. Respiratory hygiene/cough etiquette
  4. Sharps safety (engineering and work practice controls)
  5. Sterilization of instruments and devices
  6. Clean and disinfected environmental surfaces

Your Post Covid 19 Visit

Since the arrival of Covid-19, South Peek Dental Care has developed a plan of action to go above and beyond the standard precautions. We feel that the “New Normal” for dental practices should include what we will be practicing:

  1. Minimizing number of occupants in the waiting area
  2. Scheduling of appointments apart enough to maximize Social Distancing efforts
  3. Infra-red thermometers will be used are part of our screening protocols
  4. Air purifiers throughout the office. We use medical grade purifiers that will reduce bioaerosols and particles (i.e. bacteria, viruses) as small as 0.1 microns
