Safety Protocols

Dear Patient:

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Medical Grade HEPA Air Filtration units have been placed throughout the office.
  • Your hygienist will be minimizing the aerosols produced during your dental cleanings by limiting the use of the ultrasonic scaler and the use of high-speed suction will be incorporated into your hygiene visit as it is during your other dental procedures.
  • We encourage utilizing our online payment processing system, but also offer Apple Pay and tap to pay features on our credit card terminals.
  • New Patient forms are also easily accessed online via our website at These formsare sent directly to the office electronically to reduce the transfer of paper.

We look forward to seeing you again soon 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.

To make an appointment, please call our office at 631-673-0670 or visit our website to request an appointment online. Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
