Our infection control measures include:
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Finally, we use disposable materials whenever possible
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure.
The best defense against disease is information. Then, the more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. In addition, the more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
If you have any questions about our protocols and standards, then please contact Keith RR Gaught, DDS Family Dentistry by calling (919) 847-6453 or visit our contact page. Finally, ask your dentist any questions that you may have during your first visit, or any regularly scheduled appointment.
