Dentistry in Bellmore and Bayside, NY
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same - our commitment to your safety.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask screening questions.
When you arrive for your appointment we ask that you stay in your car. Please text or call (516) 781-9700 (Bellmore) or (718) 225-0515 (Bayside) and we will notify you when to enter.
When you enter the office we ask that you go to the bathroom first and wash your hands. Following that please proceed to the front desk for a temperature check, using a contact-less thermometer, and to review the screening questions again
You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
We understand that many appointments (especially cleaning and orthodontic) were missed over the past three months. We are trying our best to provide everybody an appointment as soon as possible, but still maintain the safety required to continue the downward trend of COVID-19 exposures. Please be understanding as our scheduling team works to do so.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we have taken to keep every patient and our staff safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (516) 781-9700 (Bellmore) or (718) 225-0515 (Bayside).
Thank you for being a member of our dental family. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back.
