Daily Infection Control Practices at Moses Lake Dental Group

Infection control procedures are actions taken in health care settings to prevent the spread of disease. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

Our office has taken the following additional Infection Control measures to prevent our patients as well as employees from exposure to SARS-CoV-2 virus during the dental treatment that generate aerosol.

  • Personal Protective Equipment: N95 and KN99 respirators, face shields, gowns, head and foot covers
  • HEPA filter in the facility furnace
  • HEPA air purifiers in each room
  • Exhaust Fans in each treatment room. These fans create a negative pressure in the room by eliminating all the pathogens from the facility to great outdoors.
  • UVC lights for treatment room disinfection
  • Oral Aerosol Evacuation System to eliminate the aerosol production from the breathing zone of employees and patients.
  • Cold Fogging System that cleans the infectious air from pathogens.
  • Sneeze guards for the reception area
