We at Gulati Dental Clinic, follow all the sterilization and disinfection procedures required for infection control. These are used for each and every patent to prevent the transmission of the dreaded HIV/AIDS virus, Hepatitis virus and other infectious diseases. All our staff involved in patient care share a very concerned attitude in this regard. We follow a stringent Four- tier sterilization process for our instruments.

Infection control is one of our utmost priorities.
