At Lighthouse Family Dentistry, we want to ensure that all of our patients feel safe when they visit our dental office. We have always practiced infection control in our office to ensure the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our dental office has put new procedures and protocols in place to minimize the spread of infection.
With new PPE and sanitization, Dr. E. Taylor Meiser and his team are able to continue to provide patients with high-quality dental care. On this page, we will review patient safety and infection control precautions in our Annapolis, MD office.
Keeping Our Dental Office Clean and Safe
In order to keep our office safe and sanitized, we have put these systems in place:
Our dental office follows infection control guidelines from the CDC/ADA. These guidelines are followed in addition to our standard precautions and infection control procedures. Following CDC and ADA-released guidelines ensures that everyone in our office feels and stays safe so they can receive the dental care they need.
We sanitize all of our dental equipment, water lines, and airlines. Between each patient visit, we disinfect and clean the dental exam rooms. In addition, we frequently disinfect the reception and front desk areas. Any high-touch surfaces, including dental chairs, tables, and counters, are sanitized and wiped down. Taking these precautions makes a big difference in the level of cleanliness in our office.
Our dental team wears the proper recommended Personal Protective Equipment. Wearing masks throughout complex dental procedures and even routine dental cleanings protect against the transmission of germs from person to person. Gloves are also worn to protect the hands from germs in the mouth and on dental tools.
