Safety Guidelines

Your health and safety are our top priority, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. We follow all the most recent guidelines from the CDC, the ADA, and the States of New York and New Jersey Departments of Health regarding dental care precautions against the spread of COVID-19.

If you have recently tested positive and have not completed the quarantine period (5 days if fully vaccinated or 10 days unvaccinated from the time you are without a fever) or have had a recent close exposure to someone who has tested positive, please notify our office, and reschedule your appointment. Your safety, the safety of all of our patients and staff is our greatest concern.

  • You will be screened for COVID symptoms at the time you make your appointment and again when you arrive for your appointment.
  • Your temperature will be taken immediately on entering the office.
  • Our front office staff wear masks and jackets as needed. Don’t be surprised by their appearance.
