We hope you and your families are feeling strong and smiling safe! We have made updates to our office protocols to ensure the health and safety of our patients and team. SDNJ will always go above and beyond to create the safest environment for every person who walks through our doors.

Effective immediately, the following conditions and protocols are in place at Specialized Dentistry of New Jersey:

  • Practice Social Distancing
  • Staff will wear personal protective equipment (PPE) and follow universal precautions as per the CDC
  • All SDNJ team members are health screened daily

SCHEDULING

  • Covid-19 exposure screening on the phone prior to your visit
  • Reschedule is someone from your household has been sick within 14 days
  • Please be patient as we try to accommodate everyone

ARRIVAL

  • We ask that those who come to our office with a companion, limited it only 1 additional person as to allow for adequate socially distant space in our atrium waiting area.
  • Review of Covid-19 exposure screen in person.

  • Observe social distancing best practices. Please be patients as we will be limited to 2 patients checking out a front desk at a time.
  • Patients are considered to manage payment over the phone (provide credit card in advance of treatment) or to "pre-write" checks at home, to facilitate a quick check-out and avoid crowding at the front desk.
