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 to 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 help their staff get some financial security. Using the available legal tools, she helped clarify how you can cut the staff overhead in your practice to appropriate levels necessitated by your business plan as we start to enter the recovery phase. One can use the Unemployment Insurance Benefits as a supplement to staff’s loss of income due to under-employment. There were a couple of unemployment insurance benefits discussed by Ms. Ennis. The additional tools will give your staff a bit of 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 documentation:

Small Business Development Center just released their useful Cash Flow Year worksheet and the slides of their presentation with links to additional resources. 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.

If anyone would like to discuss one-on-one with an advisor on SBDC team for further assistance, they may send the completed & signed Counseling form to SBDC@csi.cuny.edu. From there, SBDC will assign you to an advisor and will coordinate a virtual appointment. The Counseling form can be found here.

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.

CORONAVIRUS & COVID-19 NOTICE:

We Are Open for All Patient Dental Services

Your Safety: We want you to know that by entering our offices, you will be in one of the safest places in New York City. In fact, our specialists are helping train other dentists about how to manage infection control in their offices.

As an emergency care provider, we have been open during the state of “PAUSE” for emergency services, and we are now open for all patient visits. In light of the pandemic, we implemented additional precautions for patients and staff, many of which turned out to exceed the CDC and DOH recommendations when such guidance was issued. Some of the changes you might notice:

  • Contactless check-in. We have converted our administrative procedures to online forms that can be completed from home, eliminating the need for a physical waiting room or contact with anyone outside of the clinical staff.
  • Tele-Dentistry Triage process. Our doctors contact you after you have made an appointment and before you arrive at the office to discuss your dental concerns, in order to eliminate any unnecessary in-person visits.
  • Tele-Dentistry Consult, allows patients to have an in-depth conversation with a clinician prior to their arrival to: (1) review patient’s health and dental history, (2) to receive a tentative diagnosis as to why the patient is experiencing his/her symptoms and what the appropriate treatment is, and (3) to review the pros and cons of each treatment option and its expected success rate over time.
  • All doctors and staff have been tested for SARS-CoV-2
  • All patients are interviewed regarding recent exposures to SARS-CoV-2 and tested
  • Robust PPE for the clinical staff
  • Strong Engineering protocols and strict Administrative Controls to eliminate risk of exposure and enhance infection control significantly

If you have any questions about the steps we are taking, please feel free to contact us.

We’re excited to continue providing gold-standard dental care.
