If you're traveling to these states, call your dentist first!

In an attempt to keep the incidence of COVID exposure down in our community, all dental practices should be following the travel advisory announced by Gov Cuomo requiring that individuals travelling from states with significant community spread of COVID-19, quarantine for a 14 day period from the time of last contact with the identified state.

As of today the New York State Department of Health has listed the following states as meeting that criteria: Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Nevada, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.

Please follow the NYS Dept of Health's full travel advisory which can be found at https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory

If you have any questions prior to your appointment, please contact the dental office ahead of time. In all likelihood you will need to reschedule your appointment until after your 14-day quarantine has passed.

Let’s keep our community and neighbors safe and healthy! 

Thanks so much for your cooperation. We're all in this together!

Stay well. Stay safe.
