we are committed to safetytyWe understand it’s been a difficult time for New Yorkers. Like the rest of the country, the staff here at Long Island Implant and Cosmetic Dentistry have been carefully monitoring the ongoing developments of the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re happy to say that we are once again open for all types of appointments (emergency and otherwise)— with some modifications. Our entire team is taking every possible precaution to protect the health and safety of our patients and staff members. Please take note of the following coronavirus safety precautions.

How we’re keeping our valued patients safe

At our dental office, your safety is our highest priority. Our entire team is following stringent safety protocols recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the New York State Dental Association (NYSDA), the New York Department of Health (NYSDOH), and the American Dental Association (ADA). You can expect the following precautions when you visit us:

  • All staff members are wearing personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times.
  • We are using hospital-grade disinfectants that have been approved by the CDC to kill coronavirus.
  • We are following expert-recommended sterilization protocols to prevent viral transmission.
  • Whenever possible, we are using single-use tools and supplies to eliminate the possibility of viral transfer on these objects.

How you can help us maintain a safe environment

We understand that these last few months have been trying and that you’ve been asked to change your daily life in so many ways. We ask that you continue to follow all recommended safety practices to protect yourself, your family, and your community. Please follow the guidelines below:

  • Call us right away to reschedule your appointment if you develop possible COVID symptoms, if you test positive for COVID, or if anyone in your household or whom you’ve come into contact with could be infected.
  • Please do not arrive early for your appointment. If you do arrive early, please wait in your car until the appointed time, as we are staggering appointments to limit the number of patients in the office at any given time.
  • Everyone entering our office is required to wear a mask (or other material that covers the mouth and nose) at all times until instructed to remove it for exams and treatments.
  • Please observe social distancing guidelines and stay six feet away from others whenever possible.

If you have any questions or concerns about our COVID safety precautions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
