Our dental practice in West Los Angeles adheres to the highest standards of infection control in accordance with CDC and OSHA guidelines. We use barrier techniques and many disposable items to eliminate cross contamination and all equipment and instruments are disinfected and sterilized prior to treating each patient. Our sterilization equipment is regularly monitored using a independent testing facility to insure 100% effectiveness, and our team goes through annual training on the latest infection control protocols.
Due to the Covid19 pandemic we have implemented additional protocols to keep everyone as safe as possible. This includes the following: Aerosol vacuums with UVC and Plasma disinfection, UVC air purifiers, medical hyperHEPA air filtration, air purifying device in HVAC unit, open windows and doors for ventilation, covid vaccination for staff, screening of patients, full PPE and disinfection of all surfaces, equipment, and instruments, and use of as many disposable items as possible.

Digital Radiographs vs. Film
Digital x-rays are the new standard in dental imaging. Compared to traditional film, digital imaging:
- Avoids environmental pollutants encountered with film processing
- Requires much less radiation
- Requires NO time to process
- Allows for instantly communicating images without distortion
