Dr. Buntemeyer and his team care about your health and safety. They work very hard to prevent the spread of infection during your visit to the office.
Before you enter the examining room, all surfaces, such as the dental chair, dental light, drawer handles, and countertops, have been cleaned and disinfected. Offices may cover some equipment with protective covers, which are replaced after each patient.
Non-disposable items like dental tools are cleaned and sterilized between patients. Disposable dental tools and needles are never reused. Infection control precautions also require all dental staff involved in patient care to use appropriate protective equipment such as gloves, masks, gowns, and eyewear when needed. After each patient, disposable gloves and masks are thrown away. Before seeing the next patient, everyone on the treatment team washes their hands and puts on a new pair of gloves.
Your well-being is important to us! That’s why infection control procedures are in place at our office!
