COVID-19 Our Office and You – August 1, 2021 Update

With the health, safety and well being of both our patients and staff in mind, and in order to help keep both our staff and our patients safe, we continue to follow the recommended guidelines for healthcare offices which we will review with you when you call to schedule an appointment.

Some helpful information

Appointment Scheduling: We continue to space appointments so that only one patient will be in the office at a time. We currently permit two members of the same family to enter the office together, or if you require an aid, that person may enter with you.

Office Hours: The office is open on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and one Saturday a month, with appointments being scheduled for Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.  Please check our “Office Hours” page for more details.

Emergencies outside of office hours: For patients of record who are having a dental emergency on a day we are not in the office, please call us at 516-731-8198 and follow the instructions on the voice messaging system.

Out Of State Patients: We continue to follow the most recent guidelines for patients who are coming from outside New York. Because the CDC and NYS Department of Health guidelines periodically change, we ask that you call the office so we can go over them with you. Compliance with the guidelines may take several days, so please plan ahead.

Patients Returning From International Travel: We continue to follow the most recent guidelines for patients who are returning to the US from international travel. Because the CDC and NYS Department of Health guidelines periodically change, we ask that you call the office so we can go over them with you. Compliance with the guidelines may take several days, so please plan ahead.

We realize some of these protocols may prove to be an inconvenience, and want to thank you in advance for working with us to make everything go as smoothly as possible.
