Covid-19

I am happy to announce that our office will be re-opening for full patient care in the next few weeks. Rest assured that we have gone above and beyond the measures recommended by the CDC, OSHA, ADA, and NJ State Board of Dentistry.

My team and I have been thoroughly trained on the many aspects of the enhanced protocols recommended. We will be following the CDC recommendations to the letter. You can access them here.

We have also updated and adapted our current systems to make your experience smoother & simpler, rather than burdensome & inconvenient. This includes updated medical histories & consents, as well as temperature screening for both patients and team members.

We have also created a system to allow you to directly interact only with your provider while in our office. We have enabled systems for online billing. Our goal is to utilize these changes to enhance your experience. We will do our best to maintain our schedule. To do that, we need your help. Please be certain to enter the office no earlier than 5 minutes prior to your appointment. If we happen to be off schedule, we will notify you.

When you approach the door, you will notice some signs on the door. As per state guidelines, please arrive in a face covering. We will provide sanitary wipes for you to use to open the doors. There is a hand sterilization station when you enter. Your provider will greet you at the door and personally escort you to your treatment room. Please be certain to update your contact information, health history, updated billing information, and general consent for treatment prior to your appointment through this website.

We have designed this so you will not have to wait for us. Please do not expect to spend time or leave anything in our reception area. You will be personally escorted through our rear exit at the end of your visit. You will not be crossing paths with any other patients during your visit here.

While your provider dons their PPE, you will be asked to rinse with a mouth wash.

There are likely going to be changes in your oral health since many people are overdue for treatment, including cleanings. We will be conducting comprehensive evaluations for any patient who has not had one in the last 2 years. A comprehensive evaluation is an in-depth examination that will us to re-establish your baseline. Though this may seem like an extra-step, it is in your best interest to have a comprehensive exam performed prior to any treatment.

Besides working with our specialists to donate hundreds of meals to Riverview Medical Center to support essential health-care workers, I was featured in an article in the Asbury Park Press.

Lastly, I am very excited to announce that I am expecting my baby girl, Dylan Rae Cirone Klayman, this July.
