Governor Cuomo has lifted the mandate and we are once again allowed to see patients for all procedures.
We are excited to welcome our patients back to our practice and continue doing what we love best which is providing exceptional comprehensive dental and sleep apnea care to you and your family. We have missed you and truly appreciate you being a part of our dental family.
While many things have changed at our practice, one thing remains the same: “Our Commitment to Your Health and Safety”.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice as you have already seen during your past visits to our office. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep our patients and our team safe.
Our practice follows the latest infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA), and the NYS Department of Health. In addition, we have gone above and beyond these guidelines by having a six-stage filtration system installed in each treatment room and routinely fogging the entire office with a nontoxic and safe disinfecting solution.
We are now offering virtual telehealth appointments where possible.
You will see some changes when it is time for your next appointment.
Our office will communicate with you one to two days before your appointment to ask you screening questions about your health and potential exposure to Covid-19.
You will be asked those same questions when you come into the office for your appointment.
When you arrive for your appointment, please wait in your car and call or text us at 516-741-6202 to let us know that you are here. As soon as we are ready for you, we will ask you to come to our door wearing a face covering. Someone from our clinical team will take your temperature and pulse oximetry and escort you into a treatment room. There we will ask you to either wash your hands or use hand sanitizer. We will then have you rinse your mouth with a hydrogen peroxide solution for 30 seconds before treatment is rendered.
We do ask that you come alone for your appointment. If the patient is a minor, or you need a caregiver to accompany you, we ask that you only bring one person and if necessary, they will be able to wait for you in the reception room.
Appointments will be managed in order to allow for social distancing between patients. This may mean that you are offered fewer options when scheduling your appointment.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have. To schedule an appointment, please call or text our office at (516) 243-7473.
