Infection Control

Sterile Dental Equipment

Controlling infections and taking the proper precautions means the difference between protecting patients and possibly jeopardizing their health. You should trust that your dentist and team are taking the right steps in protecting your dental health. At Paramount Dental, we’re positive that we can keep you on the correct path towards a cleaner and healthier mouth.

Dr. Tam Nguyen and team are trained in procedures mandated by federal agencies and health advocate agencies such as the Center for Disease Control and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. These groups require strict guidelines to be met to ensure the proper handling of medical procedures. Of the many guidelines, here are some of the most important:

  • Use of Antibacterial / Disinfectant Hand Soap
  • Complete Sterilization of Dental Instruments
  • Protective Gear (e.g. Gloves or Face Masks)
  • Proper Use of Disposable Materials (e.g. Swabs, Gloves and Needles)

You can be sure that we take the extra step to ensure our patients’ health and safety. All equipment and instruments are appropriately disinfected and sterilized after each use. We use specific machines (that are essentially medical-grade dishwashers) to thoroughly sterilize and remove dangerous bacteria from our dental instruments. That’s a step that is paramount when looking for a dentist for you or your family and is something you can be sure that we take seriously here at Paramount Dental.
