Protecting our Patients & Staff
State of the art infection controls and universal precautions are taken to protect clients and staff alike. The cornerstone in a good and safe healthcare relationship is trust – please feel free to discuss infection control topics with Dr. Kvinsland and the staff. You will receive a straightforward answer and patient/doctor confidentiality will always be maintained.
The Kvinsland Dentistry team follows procedures recommended by: The Health Department, Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
These measures include:
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- State of the art sterilization of all equipment before each use
- Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces, using ultrasonic cleaning and an autoclave. An Autoclave is a device that kills bacteria and viruses using steam, heat, and pressure.
The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. If you are ever concerned, please feel free to ask questions.
