New York State and governor Cuomo has decided to reopen in phases but unfortunately we're not in the first phase of the opening, which are restricted to construction and manufacturing. New York State Dental Association is currently working with the governor's office to get a more solid guideline on when dental offices can reopen. For now, we have to assume we are under phase 2 reopening (professional services), which has a date of 5/29/2020 (Friday) so that leads to a reopening of 6/01/2020 Monday. If we are able to get a more solid date we will share it via email newsletter, facebook posts, and website blog posts.
Please keep in mind that our office is ready to return to work whenever the state allow us. In the meantime, we will continue to see emergency patients with pain, infection, broken teeth, or any severe discomfort. One week prior to reopening, we will send out a longer newsletter detailing our strategy to reopen safely and list out the changes we will be making to keep our patients and staffs safe.
