To keep you abreast of our office’s re-opening plans, below are some key aspects of precautions that we’re implementing to keep you and our staff safe, during your visit to our dental office.
As of 6/9/2020, none of our staff members have indicated that they have COVID-19 symptoms or currently infected with the novel coronavirus.
Although we’ve only been seeing emergency cases throughout the pandemic, we are now planning to open our office to also include elective procedures (i.e., dental cleanings, exams, etc.) on Monday, June 15, 2020.
Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, we’re implementing new procedures and safeguards as a “new normal,” to limit the potential spread of the virus in our office.
As always, thank you for your trust in our services, as we have implemented the aforementioned precautions to ensure we continue earning your trust.
Stay safe and take care of each other. We are all in this together.

At Lux Smiles dental (7 Gramercy Park West), we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation. The safety of our community (employees, patients, partners, families, and friends) is our number one priority.
Due to Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order of New York State on PAUSE (Policies that Assure Uniform Safety for Everyone), Lux Smiles will suspend all non-urgent and non-emergency dental care, until further notice. If you do require urgent/emergency dental care, please contact: (212) 777-7126.
How do we define urgent versus non-urgent procedures?
If the patient is in pain, if infection is present or if non-treatment will severely inhibit normal operation of a patient’s teeth and mouth or negatively impact their health in the next three to six months. Patients who have received recent treatment requiring the removal of sutures would also be considered appropriate for treatment. All other treatments can be delayed until the COVID-19 crisis has eased.
These are difficult times for us all. During these unprecedented circumstances, we want you to please take care of one another and be healthy. We look forward to the next time we can see your smiling face in-person again.
