At Dr. Gina Ha & Associates, we encourage our patients to ask any questions they’d like about the procedures in office. We believe all dentists should provide transparent information on the efforts made to maintain a sanitary, sterile, and safe experience for their patients.

At Dr. Gina Ha & Associates, we follow the guidelines set forth by the RCDSO. All equipment in our office is sterilized prior to use. This prevents contamination and keeps our environment pristine for the safety of our staff and patients.

Equipment sterilization is one of the most important aspects of the checklist laid out in the Infection Prevention and Control Guidelines given to all practices by the RCDSO, and we follow it rigidly.

You’ll always see that the hygienist, dentist, and aids wear gloves at all times during exams and procedures. You’ll also note surgical masks to protect both the dentist and the patients. All surfaces are regularly wiped down and sanitized following the recommended protocol.

As dentists, we understand that there should be extra precaution to disinfect all areas. This protects our patients during their procedures and our staff.
