COVID-19 Response

Smiles of Skaneateles Statement Concerning

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


In these uncertain times, it is understandable to be concerned about the new coronavirus that causes COVID-19.  Since the initial discovery of COVID-19, we have been monitoring the status and treatment guidelines from the CDC, New York State Department of Health, New York State Dental Association, and ADA. Please know that the universal precautions our practice already uses every day to prevent the spread of infection meets or exceeds the current infection control guidelines. Additionally, every year our entire team also takes a continuing education course on infection control. We most recently completed this year’s course on February 25th. 


As this situation evolves, we are doing everything we can to ensure our patient’s health and dental needs are met.  The well-being of our patients and team are of utmost importance to our practice.  In an effort to be proactive and protect the health of our patients all routine cleanings and non-emergency dental appointments will be postponed until after the risk of COVID-19 has been reduced.


We are still open and maintaining emergency care for patients that may require emergency dental treatment. Additionally, our 24-hour emergency line remains available to patients to reach Dr. Smith and Dr. Wanamaker. We also have the ability to offer limited teledentistry consults as needed.


For patients that require emergency dental treatment, in accordance with ongoing guidance from the CDC, Smiles of Skaneateles has implemented additional measures to aid in reducing the potential incidence of COVID-19 that include:

·      Upon entering the building all patients will be asked to use hand sanitizer and rinse with a hydrogen peroxide-based mouthwash known to reduce viruses. 

·      We are also screening emergency patients for recent travel, respiratory and flu symptoms.

 We will continue to update our patients as needed.  Please contact our office at 315-685-5874 with any questions.
