Dr. Fruhling and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
These measures include:
-Extraoral Dental Suction System: Specialized patient section units, in both hygiene and dental operatories that remove aerosol generated from dental procedures.
–Autoclave: a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces.
–Fogging unit with hypochlorous acid used in rooms to aid in disinfection of dental operations after use
–Medical-quality air purifiers located throughout the office
