Your Safety is Our Top Concern! 

Covid 19 & General Safety Protocols 

Infection control has always been a top priority for Village Dental Group, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

Listed below are infection control procedures we follow to help keep patients and staff safe. If you have any questions about our policies, please call us at (973) 761-4800.

Patient Protocols 

  1. Screening Questions
    Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  2. Hand Sanitizer
    We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  3. Temperature Check
    Your temperature will be taken upon your arrival.
  4. Face Mask
    No one will be allowed to enter without a face mask, which they will wear until seated in the treatment room. Everyone in the office wears face masks.
  5. Gloves
    Please discard your gloves, if you are wearing them, prior to entering the waiting room.
  6. Scheduling
    Appointments are managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.


Office Protocols 

  1. Waiting Room Sanitization
    Our waiting rooms are sanitized during the day. We no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.

    We have medical grade air purifiers in all the treatment rooms and the waiting room.

  3. Treatment Staff PPE
    Providers wear N95 masks, with face shields. Gowns and gloves as usual.

    Clerical staff wear Level 3 masks.

  5. Treatment Room Sanitization
    Treatment rooms are always sanitized between patients and all disposables discarded.
