Dear Valued Patient,
At MGDental, we make infection control a priority and ensure that we adhere to all standards for eliminating cross-contamination in order to ensure your safety. All surfaces are wiped with disinfectants that effectively kill bacteria and viruses. In light of the current 2019-nCoV (Coronavirus) outbreak, and because this virus is easily oxidized, we have supplemented our stringent protocol to include wiping surfaces with bleach and peroxide. Additionally, we have instated a 2019-nCoV questionnaire as well as pre-treatment rinsing with peroxide solution to disinfect your mouth. We are currently limiting treatment to only urgent (requiring elimination of disease or pain) or emergency care as per New York State Regulation mandated by the Governor Andrew M. Cuomo. For the safety of other patients and our staff, if you are currently presenting with a cold or flu-like symptoms, we ask that you reschedule your appointment 2 weeks after you have recovered.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation,
