At Farber Center For Periodontics 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 door knobs, countertops, etc.). They occur throughout the day and are completed with advanced cleaning products known to be effective against COVID-19 and other pathogens.

We are following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Periodontology, and State and City Health Agencies. 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.

In the weeks ahead, we will limited hours available to handle any real emergencies you may experience. Contact us through the office emergency phone system.
