Infection Control

Infection Control is an imperative part of our procedures at My Family Dentist Garland. Constant and rigorous infection control keeps our patients and our staff safe and free of risk. We want all of our patients to be able to feel peace at mind during procedures, which is why we implement as many infection control procedures as possible in order to extinguish the possibility of infection. If you have any questions or concerns about infection control, feel free to ask Dr. Heaton to learn about his precautionary measures.

My Family Dentist Garland follows procedures set in place by many federal agencies:

  • Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA)
  • Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

Our Infection Control Protective Measures Include:

  • Frequent hand washing with disinfectant hand soap
  • Use of gloves and face masks
  • Disinfection of medical surfaces and countertops
  • Thorough sterilization of all medical tools before each new patient
  • Use of disposable materials

All of our medical tools are sterilized in an autoclave which kills bacteria and viruses using intense heat and pressure.

Our office stays up to date on all of the latest information on infection control and medical best practices.
