Infection Control

At Leske Dental clinic (in the Emerald Lake Dental building), your safety is our top concern! Infection control is very important to us. To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly adhere to all sterilization standards set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

Before and after every appointment, all of our treatment surfaces are cleaned and disinfected, including dental chairs, examining lights, X-ray equipment, drawer handles and countertops. Our staff members wear new, disposable masks and gloves when working with each patient, and all our instruments and handpieces are heat-sterilized at temperatures of 400-425 degrees. In addition, we use many disposable materials whenever possible.

We are committed to providing your dental care in a safe and sterile environment.
