Welcome back to Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry. We know it’s been a long four months if you’ve been suffering from tooth pain or putting off a much-needed cosmetic procedure. However, we have been following the latest safety procedures to ensure that every precaution is taken to safely attend to your cosmetic dentistry needs. We are open to resume routine maintenance and provide new patient consultations, as well as perform all the essential emergency procedures.
As of June 19th, every state allowed dental offices to reopen for all procedures, according to the American Dental Association. Current patient volume is at roughly 60 percent of what it was around March 15th when lockdowns began.
It’s natural to feel anxious about a trip to the dentist’s office, but the pandemic only worsens the fear. Yet, health specialists and epidemiologists told the New York Times they feel comfortable returning to their doctors. Neglecting routine oral care is unwise, as poor dental hygiene has been linked to heart disease and strokes. We have taken extra protective measures to meet the highest health standards for our clientele.
In this time of coronavirus, our experienced health care professionals are taking the following safety measures:
We are compliant with all health guidelines issued by the CDC and the New York State Department of Health.
Patients who are elderly, immunocompromised, or in a vulnerable population are advised to:
If you require invasive oral surgery, you may be required to complete a COVID-19 test within three days of your scheduled procedure, for your protection and ours.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation as we all adjust to recent changes in dental care. Together, we can reduce the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions or concerns, scheduling a one-on-one consultation to discuss cosmetic options with our dentists can help put your mind at ease. Please contact us Monday through Friday during business hours or leave us a message.
Many people have been putting off both routine and urgent medical care during the pandemic, and dental visits are no exception. But how safe is it to get your teeth cleaned or a cavity filled during the COVID-19 crisis?
According to the CDC, there have been no COVID-19 clusters associated with dental or oral surgery clinics, professional fields that have remained at the forefront of infection prevention and control. In compliance with CDC Guidelines for seeing patients for non-urgent treatment, dental practices have adopted a range of new protocols designed to keep their patients and staff safe.
Strategic patient management, enhanced disinfection procedures, and extra personal protective equipment (PPE) are just some of the measures dentistry facilities are taking to diminish health risks.
The novel coronavirus is primarily spread through respiratory droplets– secretions that can cling to the floor and surrounding surfaces. To minimize the spread of these droplets, the CDC has asked dentists to adjust procedures that aerosolize saliva and respiratory droplets as much as possible.
In some cases, this means using manual instrumentation, and when aerosol-generating procedures are necessary, they are countered with staggered wait times between patients and purification with HEPA air filters.
Patients will likely notice several other changes at their next visit. Telephone screening for symptoms of COVID 19 is standard procedure, as is the requirement for all patients to wear a protective face mask or covering.
Here at Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry, our patients’ safety and oral health are top priority. Toward that end, we adhere to extensive protocols for protective equipment, sanitation, and work practices as outlined by the ADA, CDC, and the New York Department of Health.
Our dentists, hygienists, and administrative team have put the following measures in place to safeguard your health:
As experienced health professionals, we remain compliant with the latest CDC and ADA guidelines for dental practices during the pandemic. We are doing everything we can to enhance the safety of our patients and staff.
Neglecting dental hygiene or painful symptoms can have serious implications, adding cost and more extensive treatment to the equation. It’s important to continue caring for your oral health and address dental emergencies in a timely manner.
