The main goal of an infection control program is to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our patients. Precautions are always taken in the office to prevent the spread of disease. Dr. Rhode cares about your safety and works very hard to avoid infection. Our program includes spraying and wiping surfaces that come in contact with the staff and patient with antibacterial solutions prior to treatment. Hand washing stations are equipped with hand sanitizers, and the personal protection equipment (PPE) of the staff is either disposable or changed daily. The office undergoes continuous evaluation for infection control so that all of our patients can feel confident that they can receive oral health care in a safe manner.
