Patient Safety Measures
Infection Control Flushing NY
Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your oral surgeon, and their team. The cornerstone in a good and safe oral surgeon practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Li or Dr. Fan and receive a straightforward answer.

Drs. Li or Fan 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:
- Disinfectant hand soap
- Gloves and face masks
- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
- Sterilization of all equipment before every use
- Disposable materials
- Surgically Clean Air Purifiers
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental handpieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat, and pressure.
NEW CLEAN AIR SYSTEM – Surgically Clean Air purifiers
Flushing Oral Surgery & Dental Implants is taking progressive measures to sterilize the air and promoting our office as a germ-free environment which is integral in restoring patient perceptions.
The Surgically Clean Air system offers superior air cleaning through a 6 stages filtration system, high volume airflow capacity, and lower sound levels. Surgically Clean Air’s purifiers use multi-stage air purifying technologies that work together to clean, purify, and re-energize the indoor air. The six (6) stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), gases, mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants that are found in the inside air in workplaces. The negative ion generator makes indoor feel more pure, clean, and energized to help combat fatigue. For an air purifier to deliver its benefits throughout the indoor space it needs to move large volumes of air through its filtration system effectively without impacting those people that are closest to it or being too loud.
