Infection Control

Infection controls and universal precautions protect our patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — our patients, the dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. Please feel free to discuss this topic with any of our doctors or hygienists.

Drs. Duff & Cox’s entire team follows procedures recommended by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) as well as the local Virginia Board of Dentistry. These measures include

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

Drs. Duff & Cox sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental instruments and handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure.
