Dental Practice Recovery from SARS-CoV2 and Future Preparedness

Supporting spreadsheet, legal handout & course recording from May 12th webinar on Practice Recovery

This webinar was an off-the-record conversation hosted by EOI-NYC. Its target audience was New York City’s licensed dentists. Views presented here are those of the speakers and not EOI-NYC.

Legal information from Attorney Felicia Ennis:

My take home message from Felicia’s presentation was plan to protect your staff not only from the novel coronavirus, but also to protect them from financial uncertainty. She laid out the laws (legal tools) that are meant to guide employers on how to setup a safe work environment to return to. She continued by laying out tools for employers to not only help their staff become a bit more financially secure, but allow the employers cut the unnecessary staff overhead as they get ready to return to work. There were two scenarios described on how employers can use unemployment insurance benefits to supplement their payroll cost, while the staff remains underemployed. The additional tools will give your staff a bit more financial security in these uncertain times while help shore up the solvency of your practice. She reminded us to roll out our reemployment plans in a manner that is fair to all our staff members. She clarified the law’s requirements on the subject.

Ms Ennis talked about the requirement of having a written plan before opening practices.

SBDC’s Presentation and Supporting Worksheet:

Small Business Development Center just released their useful Cash Flow Year worksheet and the slides of their presentation with links to additional resources to us. They also indicated that you can use the this form in order to contact them for help with any financial resources and tools.

How to use the spreadsheet:

  1. Use the spreadsheet to project your financial need for the coming year for both optimistic and pessimistic scenarios.
  2. Arrange for financial backup plans based on your projections, in the event of both a future downturn or arrival of a business opportunity. Make sure financially you are prepared.

Peer Reviews

  • Dr. Jonathan Marcus, JB Dental, PC; 3410 Broadway #1, New York, NY 10031
    • I’ve been referring patients to EOI for the past several years for endodontics. Notwithstanding the doctor being a real gentleman, he truly is the best at what he does. My patients consistently tell me how he has shattered their pre-conceptions of what a Root Canal is all about. His calm gentle manner, married to his cutting edge technology clearly puts him in a league of his own.
  • Dr. Kristin Manitzas Miles, Pediatric Dentist and CEO, Majestic Smiles Pediatric Dentistry PLLC
    • I’ve been referring my endodontic patients to EOI… They are professional, empathetic and perfectionistic—the total package… When I refer to them, I know my patient will be seen in a timely manner, will be treated with respect, and will get a good result. I can highly recommend them without reservation.
  • Dr. David Poiman DMD, FAGD, 57 W 57th Street, New York, NY
    • I am a general dentist, and we have been working with EOI for several years. They are very conscientious and professional dentists, providing patients with superb results. They have treated my family members as well.
  • Dr. Stewart Rosenblatt, DDS 191 Third Avenue, New York, NY
