From our Family to Yours, we hope and pray that everyone in your life is healthy and feeling well. To say we are living in uncertain times is a massive understatement and fear is normal. However, Faith is what fuels us through times of fear and uncertainty. Many of you have reached out to see if our office is open during this crisis. Please rest assured that as Healthcare Providers, treating patients is what we do. The Infection Control and Anti-viral protocols that we have practiced for 30 years to protect our Patients and Staff from viruses stronger than Covid-19 is what the rest of the world is just catching up to now. So the answer is YES we are open for treating emergency patients on an as needed basis and taking care of patient's needs. Our On-Site Laboratory also makes us uniquely qualified to handle emergencies in a timely and efficient way.
Additionally, many dental offices on Staten Island and Brooklyn have simply shut their doors completely during this crisis leaving many patients with emergencies and potential infections in need. The last thing we want is for those patients to resort to emergency rooms when hospitals and staff are already extremely overburdened. Rest assured that we and our On-Site Lab are welcoming new emergency patients in need, to treat you and your family in a timely and safe way.
We are also working on a proprietary method to perform consultations using tele-dentistry and should have a method on-line to help patients with that soon.
Humans are resilient, New Yorkers even more than most!!! We will get through this. We are here to help however we can.

Article Title: 10 Common Dental Problems and How to Avoid Them
Through this health news article, common dental problems are discussed that affect many of our patients. Some of the most common dental problems include:
Bad Breath- halitosis or bad breath is usually caused by layers of bacteria on the tongue. These bacteria can lead to a foul-smelling odor.
Gum Disease- bad oral hygiene, smoking, and genetic susceptibility can lead to gum disease, and the disease can place individuals at greater risk for heart attack and stroke.
Tooth Sensitivity- if the gums recede 1-2 millimeters, the roots of the teeth can become permanently exposed. The root surface is porous and then can allow for fluids and air to stimulate the nerve in the center of each tooth.
Cavities- You have heard about the dangers of cavities ruining your smile since you were a child. Preventing cavities begins with good oral hygiene and regular dental check ups.
Toothache- a toothache can be a signal to other oral health problems including cavities, gum disease, impacted wisdom teeth, and more.
