Announcement of Temporary Dental Office Closure
Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
Our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. In this unprecedented time, we are deeply committed to keeping everyone safe.
In light of the evolving pandemic and out of an abundance of caution, we have decided to close our practice for the next two weeks until April 20, 2020. We believe that this closure will allow us to more effectively evaluate this dynamic situation and assist in following the CDC’s guidance on social separation. If you have an appointment scheduled with us this week, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.
Should you require emergency dental care, please call our office as you normally would and we will contact you.
📞 Call +732-219-8900
We did not make this decision lightly. A great deal of care, research and planning guided our decision. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours. Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind.
We wish all of you continued health and strength during this challenging time.

Concerned About Visiting a Dental Office During COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?
We know you may have concerns about visiting a dental office during COVID-19, so we've prepared some information to help you get the information you need to help you feel routinely safe during treatment.
We work very hard at Advanced Dentistry with a Gentle Touch to ensure your safety and health during dental treatment and will be happy to show you what we do to protect against disease transmission.
Dentists are routinely exposed to several occupational hazards, including exposure to infections, hepatitis, ionizing radiation, eye injuries, allergic reactions, psychological and stress challenges. As a result, we are acutely aware of our patients concerns relating to these and other matters and take every precaution in their behalf, as we do for our own families, who also are patients in our practice.
The same practices that we use to prevent the spread of influenza—which is already a part of a dental clinic’s standard operations—also prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Why Your Dental Health Is Important
Gum infections or dental abscess can deplete immune resources and prevent the body from defending itself against the attack of viruses like Coronavirus
We are all subject to bacteria and viruses that put the body and its defenses under stress. When your body is in optimal state of health, viruses that produce illness with symptoms resolve after the immune system reduces the virus counts to a level where they are defensible.
On the other hand, when your body’s defenses are depleted and weak, a viral attack will not only produce viral symptoms, but also cause other organs in the body to function poorly. This will have a very serious effect on your health. A weakened organ must still provide normal function, and now also additional defensive functions while your body is under attack from a virus.
How to Determine If Your Dental Procedure is an Emergency During Coronavirus?
In a statement issued on March 16, the American Dental Association (ADA) called upon dentists nationwide to postpone elective dental procedures for three weeks in order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
Concentrating on emergency dental care only during this time period will allow dentists and their teams to care for emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.
