We have made several changes in the office to create a safe environment for our patients and staff. When you arrive, please call (516-883-6199) or text us (516-405-0576)from you car (or outside the building). We are reducing the number of people in the office - and reducing patient interaction. We need to keep distancing of 6' whenever possible. We will take your temperature. Patients or staff with a temperature at or over 100 deg F will not be admitted. Masks are a must, until it's time to remove it in the treatment room.
In the treatment rooms we have installed air filters and oral aerosol vacuums - to keep the air as clean as possible. Staff are using disposable gowns and additional PPE (compared to pre-COVID times). Some of our infection control procedures are unchanged (sterile instuments/surface disinfection) but we have intensified our cleaning procedures on some non-treatment areas to use disinfectants.
The additional steps we are taking occasionally mean you might wait a few minutes before we admit you. Please understand this is for your health and those in the area. Your patience is most appreciated.
