We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the past few months and we’re all looking forward to safely resuming our normal habits and routines. Yesterday, Governor Cuomo authorized dental offices to resume treating patients for all elective procedures effective today, June 1st, 2020. We are pleased to announce our new office location in Southampton which will be staffed by our NYC doctors year-round. Starting immediately, you may schedule appointments at both our offices on Park Avenue or in Southampton.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained constant…our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice as we continue to deliver the safest and highest level of care and treatment. Our office follows the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH). Since our facility is accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF), our guidelines are also consistent with all AAAASF guidelines that hospitals and outpatient surgery centers must follow. These practices include:
In addition, we have implemented the following changes to protect our patients and staff:
As a reminder, to reduce time spent in our office, all forms are available online prior to your arrival. We strongly encourage you to utilize this option to maximize efficiency for us all and so that you can be seated promptly.
Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back along with all of our patients, staff, neighbors, and friends!
