Welcome Back!

Monday, June 8th, 2020

We hope that you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and we are all looking to now move forward in a positive way.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. We have always followed infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We always make sure that we are updated on the most recent recommendations because infection control is a huge priority.

During these unprecedented times, we have further enhanced our cleaning practices and intensified our personal protective equipment to keep our patient and our staff safe.

We have installed IQ Air Hyper HEPA Air filters that are able to filter down to 0.003 microns which is the smallest particles that exist. These filters will be running throughout the day in order to clean and filter the air in between patients. We will also be using Germicidal UV-C Smart UV Sterilization Lamps in order to mitigate the risk from bacteria, viruses, and germs.

We continue to follow social distancing recommendations and also ask that you let us know if you or a close family member have been sick recently. As always, it is important to remember that our greatest concern is to keep everyone safe before, during and after your visit.

  • If you have not been feeling well or have had a fever in the last 24 hours before your visit, please advise us so that we can reschedule your appointment.
  • Please arrive to the office 10 minutes prior to your appointment time. Once you arrive at the office, please call us at 973-668-5020 or text us at 973-606-0869 to let us know that you have arrived. We will then go over a pre-screening questionnaire.
  • In order to minimize patient risk, we are asking that only the patient enter the office. All visitors and drivers will be asked to remain in their cars. A guardian can accompany anyone under the age of 18. Everyone entering the office will have their temperature checked when they arrive. If your temperature is above 100.4, we will need to reschedule your appointment.
  • Every person entering the office must wear a mask. We will also ask you to use the hand-sanitizing stations located throughout the office to sanitize your hands.
  • We have closed our waiting room, and you will be escorted directed to the treatment room.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. Please call our office with any questions 973-668-5020.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, friends and families.
