Our patients and employees are both protected by infection controls and universal safeguards. Infection prevention is beneficial to everyone, including you, your dentist, and the dental team. The notion of trust is the cornerstone of an effective and safe dental practice. You should feel free to speak with Dr. Banga about this subject and expect a straightforward response.

Dr. Banga and our entire staff adhere to the guidelines set out by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) (CDC). These are some of the measures:

  • Hand soap with antibacterial properties
  • Face masks and gloves
  • Countertops and surfaces that have been chemically disinfected
  • Before each usage, all equipment must be sterilized
  • Materials that can be thrown away

All reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces, is sterilized. We employ an autoclave, which combines steam, heat, and pressure to destroy germs and viruses.

Information is the finest weapon against sickness. The more information you have, the more prepared you will be to make informed decisions regarding your health care. You will feel more at ease if you are more informed about our everyday procedures and policies.
