PATIENT SAFETY: Health and Privacy

  • A Clean & Safe Practice…“Your Health and Safety is our First Concern”

Our Dental Office in Morton Grove, IL is fully prepared to treat you safely with all the required measures in place. As a dental practice, we have always exceeded infection control standards and continue to do so. In addition to our already stringent protocols, we have installed central and local air purification systems to be able to provide dental care of the highest standards, in a safe and comfortable environment.

Uncompromising Safety: To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization, sanitation and cross contamination processes to accomplish a virtually virus-free and bacterial-free environment.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

We have exceeded the CDC, OSHA and ADA safety guidelines by implementing additional equipment, vigilant preparations and safety precautions.

                  Surgically Clean Fresh Air…

What is Surgical Clean Fresh Air System? The system doesn’t just filter pollutants, germs, and other damaging toxins: it destroys them. How it works? Click here.

We installed the Surgically Clean Air system, a World-Class Medical-Grade indoor air cleaning system, equipped with a 6-stage filtration process that’s designed to remove Chemicals, Toxins, Germs, Odors, and most importantly kill airborne Viruses, to help reduce the spread of illness.
