Dental Care During COVID-19

General office announcement about COVID-19

By now, most of us are aware that our governor, Andrew Cuomo, signed the “New York State of PAUSE” mandate that includes a new directive that all non-essential businesses statewide must cease to offer services. This executive order has been issued to assure uniform safety for everyone, and as an oral and maxillofacial surgery practice, we must close our doors to all aspects of care except for dental emergencies.

What does this mean for you?

We are currently only seeing limited patients according to the American Dental Association (ADA) guidelines, with limited operating hours on a case by case basis.  The ADA defines dental emergencies as potentially life-threatening dental issues that require immediate attention. Please call our practice if you have an urgent dental need, such as uncontrollable bleeding or severe pain or infection, and we will make every effort to care for you.

We will reschedule all routine and non-urgent dental procedures as soon as the executive order has been lifted. In the meantime, stay home and stay healthy. Rest assured that we are in this together. You are not alone. We will do all we can to meet your oral surgical needs at the soonest possible opportunity.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, we want to treat you immediately. Please call our office at Flushing NY Office Phone Number 347-943-1960.
