Upholding Stringent Standards and Best Practices

In the ever-changing healthcare landscape, the importance of infection control has reached new heights. At Reagin Family Dentistry, we are committed to exceeding industry standards and implementing the best practices to ensure your health and safety. Gone are the days when protective gear was an afterthought; today, our dental team strictly adheres to mandatory protocols—including the use of gloves, gowns, and masks.

Disposable PPE and Sterilization

After each patient visit, our dedicated team disposes of all single-use personal protective equipment, including gloves, drapes, needles, and scalpel blades. Hands are meticulously washed, and a fresh pair of gloves is used for the next patient.

Furthermore, all hand instruments undergo a rigorous process of washing, disinfection, and sterilization with state-of-the-art chemicals or steam after each use. This meticulous approach ensures the prevention of disease transmission, setting a gold standard in infection control.

Emphasizing Hand Hygiene Excellence

Handwashing emerges as one of the most effective methods to prevent disease transmission. At Reagin Family Dentistry, hand hygiene is not a mere routine—it’s a commitment. Our dental professionals wash their hands at the beginning of the day, before and after glove use, and after any contact with surfaces that may have become contaminated.

Addressing Water Quality Concerns with Precision

We understand that concerns about the quality of water used in dental procedures may arise. Rest assured, our practices align with the infection control guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and the American Dental Association. Your safety is paramount, and we leave no stone unturned in ensuring the highest standards in every aspect of our service.

The Truth About Biofilms

In recent years, there has been speculation surrounding the potential risks associated with “biofilms” – thin layers of microscopic germs that can accumulate on various surfaces. However, scientific evidence indicates that biofilms are a common occurrence found virtually everywhere, including faucets within your own home. Rest assured that our dental office strictly adheres to rigorous protocols to effectively mitigate any potential risks, ensuring that your exposure to these germs remains well within safe limits.

If you have a compromised or weakened immune system, we encourage you to communicate this with our team. We can implement additional precautionary measures to ensure your safety and well-being during your visit.
