Infection controls and universal precautions protect patients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist, and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Patel or any member of our team and receive a straight forward answer.
Dr. Patel and our entire team follow procedures recommended by appropriate federal agencies including: the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as the American Dental Association (ADA). These measures include:

- Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
