Burlington, MA dentist, Paul G. Lombardo, DMD, 104 Winn Street, 781-272-1150

Dr. Lombardo shares your concern about the spread of disease and works hard to safeguard his patients, and staff, against infection.

When you visit our office, you will see a clean office carefully maintained by well-trained staff. Our dental team always wear gloves, eye protection and complete protective wear during each procedure. After each patient, they discard those gloves, wash their hands and put on a new pair of gloves.

Your protection starts long before you ever enter the treatment room. Here are a few of the things that you don't see: All surfaces are cleaned and disinfected, instruments are first cleaned in a disinfectant solution in an ultrasonic cleaner. They are then wrapped and sterilized in a high pressure steam autoclave-the same method used in hospital operating rooms. All instruments are stored in sterile wrappers until they are brought into the treatment room for your particular appointment and are then only handled with gloved hands.

Dr. Lombardo and his staff want you to know that your protection, care and comfort are our top priorities. That is why we meet, or exceed, the highest infection control standards.

If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us.
