A) Keeping you Safe At the Office:
(Safeguards against virus & infection)

During Shut downs due to pandemic, our doctors & team took extensive training via Live Webinars, research and self-study to learn more about Covid-19, and how to protect you and the entire team based on recommendation of CDC, ADA, OSHA, FDA and some of the top minds in infectious control. We have been here treating emergency patients, but we are getting ready to work full time while seeing less patients per hour for now following NY State re-opening plans & social distancing)

After a careful collaboration and research to ensure quality, we have invested significant amount in several new equipment, technology, PPE which when used with proper protocols, this will keep you and our team safe. *In fact, some believe a dental office equipped with these is a safer place than some other places since various overlapping steps & technology is preventing or killing the virus at various levels! Below is just a list of few:

1) We have purchased few of the best FDA air purifiers from Molekule. These units continuously clean office air from any viruses and destroy the virus, bacteria, etc! In fact, they also recommend smaller versions for home usage.

2) One of the most effective disinfectants against viruses yet safest for humans is HOCL. With our onsite HOCL Generator and easy application via spray or fog into air, we can easily reach into smallest hidden areas & disinfect the room & all surfaces between each patient. This is non-toxic yet about 100 times more effective than bleach! Electrolyzed Oxidizing Water is a powerful oxidant (800 to 1000 mV) that can kill microbial pathogens immediately upon contact by damaging cell walls or inactivate the pathogen by entering and disrupting proteins, lipids, and DNA. Here is how HOCL Works: https://www.hypochlorousacid.com/ (Read it, You would be amazed as you can use it at home as well!)

3) One notable fact is that regardless of Covid-19, we have always used Standard
Precautions as well as others following CDC & OSHA guidelines. This is great
since we did not have to learn anything new in this area in order to protect
everyone.

4) We further follow new CDC guidelines for dental office
here: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/dental-settings.htm

5) FDA guidelines: https://www.fda.gov/media/136533/download

6) All patients and staff are screened and temperature is taken using touch-less
thermometer.

7) We provide patients with a safe intra-oral antiseptic rinse before beginning a
procedure, isolate the area and also use antiseptics brushed on as needed again
during the procedure.

8) There are various systems for Oral Suctions and clean isolation such as Isolite System and Rubber Dam, etc which safeguard both the patient and the practitioner & remove splatter, etc inside oral cavity.

9) Clinical staff go through screening each day & will have a full PPE to protect the patients during treatment. We also ask patients pre-visit screening questions and postpone any treatment if there is any suspicion, sign or symptoms of infection.

10) We have upgraded all our software systems and technology to increase efficiency. For time being, we prefer to keep office time to ONLY perform clinical procedures. All administrative tasks, paperwork, payments, insurance verification, payment plans, consents, forms, discussions, etc will be completed virtually by our admin team who work remotely. This way you minimize your contact points. Also, you only deal with clinical staff who have full PPE. We ask you to please help us complete forms, etc ahead of the appointment and respond to remote staff calls, text, email before your appointment.

11) Also, we ask you to please ask any clinical or non-clinical questions you may have virtually before the appointment or after your appointment. Both admin team and doctors can be reached via emails, calls, virtual video visits and online chats, two way texts with the new upgrades in the next couple of weeks. We are opening all forms of communications to help you limit your time at the office. Why? Because our team is giving extra time between each patient in order to superdisinfect each room and all areas, materials, disposables, etc. We do everything to run on time but sometimes we ask for your patience if we need more time to disinfect any room using UV, HOCL Foggers, etc.

12) Less time at the office is good for everyone and helps adhere to social distancing. Please ensure you have filled out all forms online prior to the visit but the Covid-19 screening the evening before the appointment all done electronically. Thankfully, we have a large waiting room so its easy to stay 6 feet apart but ideally, we want you to come in exactly at your scheduled time unless we call or text you to come in earlier once your treatment room is fully disinfected. It is also critical to be on time since we cannot run into the next patient’s time causing delays and people running into each other. You should be wearing a mask and washing your hands upon arrival, we use a touch-less thermometer to take your temperature and ask about medical history and should be ready to go.

13) Again, if you have questions for your doctor, try to ask these before and after the appointment via calls, emails, virtual visits, etc. You have options to book virtual or non-virtual visits on our site at SmileCafeNY.com (We are also upgrading our website to add all forms of communications buttons and to make it really interactive & useful for you. There will also be a search box and a button to check out fair procedure fees for this area or your zip code. We prefer transparency in fees, etc.

14) In many cases, your doctor needs to go over the findings, conditions and treatment plan options with you: Our plan is to perform this ideally virtually at a convenient time for both. Once this step is done, the treatment coordinator will then go over insurance and payment plan options and would call and email you.

B) Affordable Repeatable At Home Whitening System:
