COVID-19: Precautions

Appointment Scheduling:

We are open!  We were authorized to open by the NY State Governor as of June 01.  

Please call or e-mail us for an appointment and we will be happy to schedule. We are giving the first priority to the urgent treatment that was postponed by the closure.   We are working very hard on ensuring a safe environment for our patients and our staff.  We are introducing new protocols in the office to minimize contacts and adhere to the Department of Health and CDC recommendations. We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. 

Please stay safe and healthy and we can not wait to see you at our practice!

We as dental providers, are the first in line for New York State to get vaccinated for Covid-19!

Please don’t hesitate to give us a call with any questions!
