A Message from Alan Farber, DDS and Farber Center for Periodontics & Dental Implants
At Farber Center, we’re closely following the developing public health concerns related to coronavirus (COVID-19). We want our patients, guests, and staff to know that we are taking extra measures to keep all of our offices, exam and treatment rooms, and laboratories safe and clean.
Because we are a surgical practice, we at all times observe the strict sanitizing and disinfecting protocols required for facilities like ours. Now, in addition to those, we are taking additional precautions against COVID-19. Together with all of you, we are continuously monitoring health updates from local, state, and national authorities. Our offices are open as usual and will make updates to our policies and procedures as may be required to prevent the presence or spread of COVID-19.
Specifically, we always maintain a high standard of infection control (e.g., tissues, hand sanitizers, disinfectant wipes throughout our facilities). Also, in addition to our extensive daily sanitization of facilities with disinfectant-based cleaning agents, we’ve now increased the frequency of cleanings (including doorknobs, countertops, etc.). They occur throughout the day and are completed with advanced cleaning products known to be effective against COVID-19 and other microbes.
Also, both Farber Center locations, Medford NY and Hauppauge NY, follow recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the professional associations of periodontists and dental specialists. We will do whatever is required to keep our patients and staff as safe as they can be from infection with COVID-19.
We look forward to seeing our patients for their regularly scheduled appointments and want everyone to feel safe and comfortable in our facilities.
Always feel free to contact us with questions or for more information — at any time.
Alan Farber, DDS
