Request a Dental Appointment in Cedarhurst
Announcement from office of Alina Bergan D.D.S. P.C.
NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
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 few weeks as per CDC and New York State Dental Association’s (NYSDA) COVID-19 recommendation. 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 in the upcoming weeks, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment.
Dr. Bergan will be on call in the event of a dental emergency. Should you require emergency dental care, please, call our office at (516) 3784-2882 as you normally would and we will try to assist you.
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.
Dr. Alina Bergan and staff

As the current 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve we are closely monitoring the information from the CDC , WHO, NYS and NYC governmental organizations.
As you may know, many events have been postponed due to COVID-19 and concerns about person to person transmission. We want to protect you & your families and our team during this time of concern.
At our office we continue to adhere to our environmental cleaning and disinfection policies. Dr. Bergan's Office rigorously adheres to CDC and OSHA mandated cleaning and disinfecting protocols for all surfaces in our treatment and reception areas. We use a bacterial, virucidal, fungicidal and tuberculocidal disinfectant recommended for dental operatories and hospital surgical rooms.
These precautions include:
*Barrier protection with personal protective equipment
*Ultrasonic cleaning and sterilization of all non-disposable instruments
Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Temporary Reception Area Recommendations
As of March 16, 2020 we will be implementing reception area guidelines:
We ask anyone who is not a patient to remain in the reception area. We are doing our best to ensure the disinfection of the clinical area for the safety of our patients and team members and in order to do so, only patients will be escorted to the treatment areas. In addition, we suggest you bring only patients into the office during this time in order to keep social distancing policies in effect in our reception area.
If you or a family member are not feeling well, we respectfully ask for you to reschedule your appointment.
We appreciate your understanding and support during this time.
