UPDATE, MONDAY MAY 25, 2020
We hope you are well and coping with these uncertain times right now.
We have been open only for emergency dental care since the NJ state of emergency started.
As of Tuesday May 26, 2020 at 500 am we, as well all dentists in NJ, are authorized to provide non-essential services as before.
We will still be available for all your DENTAL EMERGENCY needs.
That means WE ARE OPEN AS USUAL FOR ALL YOUR DENTAL NEEDS as we were before the state of emergency lock down.
We are still very much concerned about the transmission of the corona virus.
We will be excited to reopen with a "business as usual" approach as we have been in business 34 years !
Our goal is to provide a safe environment for all our patients and staff.
We are taking the necessary steps to ensure our office is surpassing all the requirements of the CDC and other government agencies and professional associations, including the American Dental Association (ADA) and the New Jersey Dental Association and the NJ State Board of Dentistry.
We are very concerned about your safety
You must wear a face mask for admission to this dental office.
We are implementing full PPE which means our doctors and staff are wearing surgical caps, goggles, face shields, surgical gowns, booties, and double gloving for each patient visit and all staff are being screened daily with temperature checks.
We have installed clear, plexi-glass barriers to protect you and our front desk staff upon registration and exiting your appointment for your protection.
We are continually sanitizing all non treatment surfaces in the office thru out the entire office.
The treatment rooms are fully sanitized after each patient visit to exceed all CDC recommendations.
When you come for your appointment we will ask you come alone as we do not want family or friends waiting in our reception lounge. We are keeping the flow of persons in the office to a minimum for your protection.
We also ask you call us at 201-434-3819 upon your outside arrival to the office (you may also text us to 201-424-5320) and we will let you know when to enter the office, again we are minimizing interactions with others.
We also ask you not have to use the restroom in the office, yet we do have the restroom sanitized after each use.
When you come in, we will ask you to answer some basic questions about your possible exposure to COVID-19 and we will take your temperature through a forehead scanning thermometer as well as fill out a COVID-19 disclosure questionnaire form for your protection.
When speaking with the doctor and staff you must wear a face mask.
The doctor will inform you when to lower your mask.
Upon entering both the main office thru the entry foyer and the dental treatment room you will be asked to hand sanitize, we will provide this for you.
Before the dental treatment portion of the appointment you will rinse and gargle with a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution to help disinfect your mouth.
We prefer a non-cash payment policy as we accept MasterCard, visa, american express, discover credit and debit cards as well as apple pay touch-less payment methods.
For your convenience we can still accept cash payments as well as popular payment plans thru Care Credit, Lending Club, Alphaeon and Lend USA for your payment convenience.
During this time, we ask that you request your emergency appointment through the Make An Appointment page on our website www.MyJerseyCityDentists.com and also please text us an appointment request to the following mobile number: (201) 424-5320.
Due to staffing limitations, the wait time for all calls has been drastically increased as we work to serve all our patients so we ask that you contact us through the website or via text message.
For your convenience, you can download and print out your patient forms at home from our website so you can minimize your time in the office.
For more information, please use our mobile number and text us.
Thank you, stay safe, and we can help!
