ProHEALTH Dental and the Mount Sinai Health System opened their first affiliated dental office in Long Island City, Queens. This new state-of-the-art office with eight treatment rooms will offer the latest dental technology to provide the highest-quality general and specialty dental services for patients of all ages.
ProHEALTH Dental and Mount Sinai announced their academic and clinical affiliation in September with the dual objective of expanding the scope of Mount Sinai’s renowned dental residency program to include training at community-based sites, as well as to have Mount Sinai faculty physicians and ProHEALTH dentists collaborate in the care of their patients.
It is well documented that poor oral health has a significant impact on overall health and wellness, and this coordinated program will look to address this important health issue.
“We are among the first health systems to address the important connection between oral and overall health through the coordination of care between patients’ primary care physicians and dentists,” said Kenneth L. Davis, MD, President and CEO of the Mount Sinai Health System. “We are pleased to be working with ProHEALTH Dental to further our mission of providing preventative care, promoting health and wellness, and expanding access to care in the communities we serve.”
“We expect this to be the first of many programs and offices under our affiliation agreement with Mount Sinai,” said Norton L. Travis, CEO of ProHEALTH Dental. “We are committed to fulfilling our mission of improving overall wellness through our Oral Health Initiative.”
The ribbon cutting ceremony will take place at the new office located at 50-11 Vernon Boulevard, Long Island City, at 9 am on Thursday, November 9. Senior representatives of Mount Sinai and ProHEALTH Dental will be present for comments and photo opportunities.
