To All Of Our Patients:

We will be re-opening June 29, 2020. We look forward to seeing you, please call us today at NYC Office Phone Number 212-888-3159 to schedule an appointment.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. With the additional precautions that have to be taken in the current climate, we are following the recommendations made by the American Dental Association, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office
- We have removed the magazines from the waiting room since those are difficult to disinfect.
- We have limited the available seating in the waiting room so that you will be no closer than 6 feet from another patient.
- We request that you come alone to your visit, except for essential people who need to accompany you.
- We have installed air purifying units in the waiting room and all treatment areas.
- We are asking all patients to wear a mask to their appointments. We will not be in a position to provide them as we need to conserve our supply for the doctors and staff.
While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety.
Gerald K. Appelle, DMD
3/17/2020 Update: As members of the health care profession, we are responsible for following the guidelines from the American Dental Association and Centers for Disease Control to protect the safety of our community and our dental team. Therefore, we are closing our dental facility to the public for the next few weeks. Since this is a fluid situation and depending on the severity of the crises, we may have to extend the shutdown period. We will keep you up to date as further information becomes available. Please disregard any automatic appointment confirmation notices you may receive.
If you are experiencing a dental emergency please contact your local hospital. Dr. Appelle will be available to answer any questions by email, contact us at: [email protected]
From all of our staff, thank you for bearing with us during these uncertain times.
