We hope this message finds you well and your loved ones healthy and safe. Although the daily routine has changed for all of us, our concern for your health and well -being continues. We send our best wishes to all of you and your family.
We look forward to re-opening for routine dentistry, as soon as we are told to do so by the American Dental Association and New York Dental Association. We have always been at the forefront of insuring the health and welfare of patients, by implementing stringent infection control, including sterilization monitoring, and using disposables where ever possible.
When you return, you will notice some new procedures in place. Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. Temperatures will be taken on all staff and patients before entering the office. We have hand sanitizers throughout the entire office and will ask you to use it when entering. In addition, our entire staff will be wearing masks and our clinical staff will be dressed in full personal protective equipment (gowns, face masks and visors). We are limiting the number of patients entering the office. Therefore, you may be asked to wait in your car until your appointment time and we will notify you by a phone call or text when to enter the office. We have implemented a paperless system where all medical history update forms, new patient forms, and other correspondence may be accessed from your own computer and/ or cell phone through our website. This will eliminate pen and paper usage. We are also installing a medical grade air purifier in our treatment area.
Over the 18 years I have been in practice, I have weathered many storms and evolved to adapt to every new challenge, and on behalf of our entire staff, we look forward to welcoming you back to routine dental care in a safe and comfortable environment.
Please remember we are currently opened for emergency treatment Tuesdays and Thursdays 10-2 pm. We look forward to seeing you soon. Please stay healthy.
