ProHEALTH Dental, with offices in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and Westchester, has launched a teledentistry program to help both existing and new patients connect with a dentist via laptop, tablet or smartphone, making it easy and convenient for anyone with dental-related questions, issues or pain to obtain advice and care from a team of expert dental providers from the safety and security of home.

Patients can call 855-PHD-CARE or 718-DENTIST to request a teledentistry appointment.

The teledentistry program can also help connect people experiencing dental emergencies with a ProHEALTH Dental office remaining open for emergency appointments in Lake SuccessHuntingtonHoward BeachAstoria and White Plains.

“Our goal is to make it easier and more convenient for patients to connect with our dental providers during this unprecedented time,” said Norton Travis, CEO of ProHEALTH Dental. “That’s why we’re adding teledentistry as a service to allow patients access to dental care while they are homebound due to the COVID-19 outbreak.” 

Offering teledentistry is another service that ProHEALTH Dental is offering to further its mission to promote oral health as a key element to improved overall health.

“It is well-documented that maintaining proper oral health is a key element to avoiding many diseases and remaining healthy,” said Bruce G. Valauri, DDS, FACP, Chief Dental Officer at ProHEALTH Dental. “If we allow our mouths to suffer from gum disease and other bacteria producing conditions, we increase our risk of many serious chronic diseases including diabetes, heart and pulmonary disease, oral and other cancers, kidney disease, and even Alzheimer’s disease. Let’s use this unique opportunity to improve our oral health habits and keep ourselves and our families as healthy as possible”.

At a time when nothing can be more important than keeping ourselves and our families healthy, people should continue to follow these simple steps to better oral health: 

·       Brush after every meal and after snacks. Whether you’re home from work or school, you’re likely eating more frequently – that means brushing more frequently too. 

·       Just like we’re singing “Happy Birthday” while washing our hands to make sure we do it right, we should take just as much time when we brush and floss our teeth.

·       Be sure to brush ALL tooth surfaces (front, back, tops and gumline) and contacting our gum tissues simultaneously.
