Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust & open communication. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Freitas.

Dr. Freitas and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH), ADA (American Dental Association) & CDS (Chicago Dental Society). In response to Covid-19 we have escalated our infection control measures to the highest level, here are some of the implemented safety measures:

  • Patient Health Screenings
  • Full PPE
  • NEW Air Purifiers
  • NEW High Power suction & vacuum pump
  • Digital ultrasonic instrument cleaner
  • Plastic barriers
  • Chemical disinfection of all surfaces
  • Autoclave sterilization of instruments & equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials.
  • Staggered patient appointments to maintain social distance.

Feel free to request an office tour!
