Our Infection Control Program
Visitors to our practice have probably noticed the efforts we put into making the office open and comfortable. Well, it’s not just cosmetic. We’re doing something about protecting your health.
We consulted with experts in the field of asepsis—sterilization. Our aim was to find the best that technology has to offer to keep the practice safe for our patients. And we did. Today we meet—and exceed—the infection control standards of the American Dental Association and Center for Disease Control.
Often these rigid protocols are familiar: masks, gloves, and eye protectors. And you can’t help but notice all our “protective barriers”—plastic coverings that shield everything from cross-contamination: chairs to light fixtures, x-ray units to suction hoses.
We also test our steam and chemical vapor autoclaving and disinfection techniques by independent labs on a regular basis.
Sure, it’s a lot of work. But our patients deserve it, and we’re proud to insist on the highest standards. We’d be happy to take you on the “Grand Tour” and explain our infection control system in more detail, so feel free to ask after your next appointment.
We have a firm belief: all the best dentistry in the world isn’t worth much unless it contributes to your overall health. Here, your safety is our first priority!

Dr. Angela Burns moved to Austin 10 years ago and instantly fell in love with our beautiful city. Dr. Burns is originally from the Texarkana area. She attended Texas A&M for her undergraduate degree and The University of Tennessee Health Science Center for her degree in dental surgery (DDS). Dr. Burns is committed to providing her patients with gentle, technologically advanced dental treatment. She attends an average of 60 hours of continuing education every year. She is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Texas Dental Association, and the Capital Area Dental Society. Dr. Burns and her husband, Gary, have an 11-year-old daughter, Sydney, who is a proud 6th grader at Hill Country Middle School. She is also very involved in the Eanes PTO, her church, and loves raising her family in the Westlake community. “Growing up, I was drawn to mediating and helping others feel more included and less anxious. I was a camp counselor, student government officer and being the oldest of five, I was the family mediator. I found that I had a calling to help alleviate stressful situations for others and realized that being a good listener was something that was key to this. These skills really helped guide me into becoming a dentist that has based my practice on relationships, empathy and a sense of comfort. I knew that I wanted to provide an atmosphere that felt like home when others walked in. Our practice is small, personal and state of the art and we hope you feel like you’re hanging out with friends when you are here!” When she is not practicing dentistry, Dr. Burns enjoys traveling, hiking the greenbelt, enjoying Austin’s music scene, and eating Amy’s Ice Cream.
