Policy Regarding The Novel Corona Virus (COVID-19)

Keeping Our Patients Safe

In the evening of 3/16/20, the American Dental Society and New York State Dental Association published guidelines on the treatment of dental patients during the current public health crisis. We are following these recommendations and, as such, will only be open to treat patients with true dental emergencies. We continue to monitor the NY Forward Re-Opening Plan and hope that we will be allowed to open our office for all dental services at the beginning of June. Once we have more guidance, we will provide an update.

Our office will remain available by phone during normal business hours to schedule emergency treatment during this restricted period and to reschedule non-urgent treatment.

We appreciate your cooperation and consideration.

Dear Patients:

The health and safety of our community and staff at Catalano Leifer Bruno & Russell Family Dentistry are of the utmost importance to us.  We would like to share with you our office guidelines regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

We request that if you are experiencing the symptoms of a common cold, flu or other illness to reschedule your appointment and remain at home.

We request patients reschedule their appointments if you have travelled internationally within the past two weeks to regions with widespread or sustained community transition as indicated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC): China, Iran, Italy, Japan and South Korea. 

We would like to emphasize the importance of following the CDC guidelines which include avoiding touching eyes, nose and mouth; covering coughs or sneezes with tissues and disposing of the tissue in the trash; and washing hands for at least 20 seconds. 

When visiting our facility, we encourage you to wash your hands or use hand sanitizer at the front desk and treatment rooms. We will continue to update our policies as recommended by the CDC.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding these guidelines, please reach out to us directly at 518-943-9090.

Thank you,

The staff at Catalano Leifer Bruno & Russell Family Dentistry
