Dr. Michalak and the entire team follow infection control procedures set by the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, the EPA, and CDC. We are up to date on training and have a yearly OSHA review to ensure our safety and the safety of our patients.
Dr. Michalak worked at a sterilization monitoring service for three years during college and knows the importance of frequent monitoring.
We sterilize all reusable equipment. We surface disinfect between all patients.
We use an autoclave that is designed to kill bacteria and viruses through a combination of steam, heat and pressure. We monitor our sterilization weekly as mandated by law using the Sterlization Monitoring Service at OSU.
We use universal precautions such as gloves, masks, and eyewear.
