As you are aware, these are trying times for all of us. Due to concerns for the well-being of our patients, as well as the staff, we are making changes to our office hours to address the Covid-19 pandemic. Following the recommendations of the American Dental Association, as well as the government, we have decided to limit treatment at our office to emergency care only.
Much like most other medical facilities, all elective care, which for us, includes cleanings and routine dental procedures, will be postponed for the next few days. We have made this decision with an abundance of caution to ensure the health of our patients, our staff, and the general public at large.
We are hoping that this unexpected disruption to our services will be of short duration. Depending upon the directives of the federal and state governments, when things normalize, we will again be able to accommodate the full spectrum of dental treatment. As healthcare providers, we are committed to always putting our patient’s safety first.
We ask for your patience during this time of a National Emergency and have always appreciated your confidence with our attention to your health.
If you are calling to check on or to change an appointment, please leave a message or, better yet, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If this is a dental emergency, you may still call the office number or text Dr. Aschheim at 917-623-8440 or Dr. Arteaga at 917-692-1224. We will return your call as soon as possible. We have also opened a Twitter feed; @dentalnyc44, where we will be posting periodic updates. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Thank you, and stay healthy!
