Infection Control

Your health and safety are our number one priority at Victor Family Dentistry. We have numerous checks in place to keep infection controlled and at bay in our offices. Infection control benefits the Victor Family Dentistry team and our patients alike. The cornerstone of a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. Please feel free to ask any questions you have about disease safety to our team or Dr. Lowenguth.  

Our office procedures are based on recommendations from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:

  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Gloves and face masks
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

All our reused equipment is sterilized via autoclave. All bacteria and viral cells are killed by steam, heat, and pressure.

The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.

The staff is trained annually by an infection control specialist  on the newest infection control protocols and any state mandates to ensure your safety.
