Following proper protocols to ensure a safe, confidential office is crucial to the success of any orthodontic clinic. The Centers for Disease Control have strict guidelines that must be adhered to, an in order for that to happen, every staff member must be made aware of them. Additionally, your practice may opt to take additional steps to ensure the health and safety of your patients.
In order to both ensure the health of your patients, as well as the life of your instruments, proper care is essential. Creating and ensuring every team member follows these guidelines is crucial to protecting against infections and protecting your team members and patients.
All orthodontic assistants must be properly trained and educated in working with the tools and equipment used in an orthodontic office, as well as working with patients. These team members should be well-versed in instrument and dental laboratory disinfection and best practices and sterilization to ensure the health and safety of all patients.
Additionally, all assistants should be well-trained in working directly with patients, exhibiting a professional and trustworthy chairside manner, knowledge of the patient’s treatment history and plan, and the ability to listen and manage patient expectations.

One area that cannot be overlooked is the importance of privacy and confidentiality for every patient you treat. Adhering to HIPAA guidelines, the Health Information Privacy and Accountability Act, protects your patient’s health information. The privacy of your patients should be taken into account in every aspect of your practice, from clinic design, to administrative safeguards.
