safe to go to the dentistWelcome 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.

Long Island Dentists Are Open for Business

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.

What Is Long Island Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry Doing to Protect Patients?

In this time of coronavirus, our experienced health care professionals are taking the following safety measures:

  • All staff members will be wearing personal protective gear.
  • Hospital-grade disinfectants are being used in combination with the latest sterilization protocols.
  • Single-use disposable materials are used whenever possible.
  • Frequently touched items like magazines and children’s toys have been removed from the office.
  • Appointments are spaced out to minimize close contact, and physical distancing is encouraged.
  • Daily appointments are limited to allow for thorough sanitization in between visitors.
  • Temperature checks and routine screenings are conducted to make sure staff is COVID-free.

We are compliant with all health guidelines issued by the CDC and the New York State Department of Health.

What Can You Do To Limit Your Risk of COVID-19?

Patients who are elderly, immunocompromised, or in a vulnerable population are advised to:

  • Wear a face covering when coming into the office.
  • Use hand sanitizer when coming and going.
  • Wait outside in the car until the dentist is ready to see them.
  • Request for the first appointment of the day.

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.
