We are very excited to announce that as of Monday June 1, 2020 Governor Cuomo has determined that dental practices statewide can reopen for all services! We are looking forward to seeing all of you again!
- Starting Tuesday June 2nd Dr. Saggese will be available for both emergency and non-emergency procedures. Starting Thursday June 4th Judy will be available for dental hygiene appointments. Please be patient with our new scheduling process as we will continue to have a reduced number of appointments available each day to ensure for proper social distancing in the office.
- All patients will be screened for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 when they arrive at the office and your temperature will be taken with a non-contact thermometer. If you fail the screening your appointment will need to be rescheduled for a later date based on recommendations from the CDC. If you are not feeling well please call ahead of time and reschedule your appointment. All patients are required to wear a mask into and out of the office. Please do not bring someone with you to the office unless absolutely necessary (minors or patients requiring assistance). If you do need to bring someone with you to your appointment they will be subject to the same screening process.
- All counters and frequently touched surfaces are being disinfected regularly. We have added medical-grade HEPA air filters to the waiting room and in each exam room. These machines filter the air in the room 4x an hour. As always, our treatment rooms are thoroughly disinfected after each procedure. In addition, we will be leaving a minimum of 15 minutes between usage of an exam lane prior to disinfecting to ensure ample time for any airborne particles to settle onto a surface.
- Our staff members are wearing enhanced PPE (personal protective equipment) per CDC guidelines.
