Folsom, CA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/02/2016 --Dr. Thomas Ludlow, Folsom, CA Dentist at Expressions in Dentistry and his dental team are committed to following strict and recommended procedures for in-office infection control in order to provide their patients with the best and safest care possible. Dr. Ludlow and his staff follow a variety of measures to ensure that the spread of disease and bacteria does not occur in their office.

Because Dr. Ludlow believes that the cornerstone of a good and safe dental office is the element of trust, he is very open with patients and staff about the topic of disease control and encourages his patients to discuss the topic with him to resolve any questions or concerns they may have. The entire staff at Expressions in Dentistry follows infection control protocols recommended by several different agencies including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA).
