COVID-19 Updates

To Our Valued Patients and Perspective Patients,

We are excited to let you know that we are open and treating patients. Please be advised that many new safety measures have been implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic. But rest assured, the goal of Affiliated Periodontists of North Jersey has always been and will continue to be the utmost safety of our patients and staff.

In addition to our already stringent infection control protocol, here are some of the extra safety procedures we have undertaken:

  • Staff and patients must always wear face coverings.
  • Your vehicle is your waiting room for the time being. We will call you to come into the office once the operatory is ready for you.
  • E-mailing (or downloading the forms via our website, ), the necessary paperwork well ahead of your scheduled appointment.
  • Social distancing by adjusting our schedule to have fewer patients in the office at any time.
  • • Daily patient and staff COVID-19 screening, including non-contact temperature taking and COVID-19 questionnaire required at each visit.
  • Sneeze guards at the front desk.
  • Medical grade HEPA air filters throughout the office.
  • Extraoral and intraoral suction units to reduce exposure to aerosol spray during certain procedures.
  • Hand sanitizers throughout the office.
  • Disinfecting all patient areas, including the bathroom, after each patient visit.
  • PPE including but not limited to: N95 and Level 3 surgical masks, isolation gowns as well as disposable lab jackets, face shields, additional surface coverings, etc.

As the premier Periodontal and Implant practice in Bergen County, we value and appreciate the opportunity to take care of your dental needs. Thank You for your continued confidence!!

We welcome any questions you may have about the measures we have implemented during these changing times.
