Infection Control

Important (March 11, 2020): Parklane Dental is committed to the health and safety of our patients, team members, and guests. Infection control is our top priority during the height of this cold and flu season, and we will continue to closely monitor the state and county health departments, the American Dental Association, and the US Centers for Disease Control for updates on the COVID-19 situation. 

In light of recent development, we thought we’d take the proactive approach and share with you how we keep your health and safety at the top of our list at Parklane Dental. You can read more on our open letter to our patients and visitors from Dr. To.


Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. To and receive a straightforward answer.

Dr. To 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). These measures include:

 

  • Disinfectant hand soap
  • Gloves and face masks
  • Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
  • Sterilization of all equipment before every use
  • Disposable materials

We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. Our office follows the same high standard of infection control both at our location in Arcadia, CA and at Sanrio Friends x Parklane Dental in Temple City, CA

The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.
