National Dentist Day was on March 6th and National Dental Assistant Week was March 5th-9th.
To show our appreciation for all our Dental Staff, Long Island Select Healthcare, Inc. (LISH) celebrated Dental Week. We appreciate our Dental Department and are grateful for their dedication and hard work serving patients throughout Suffolk County. Our dentists bring over 160 years of combined experience to our patients.
LISH dentists currently serve over 1,150 patients ranging in age from 7 to 95 years old! We offer dental services at three of our Suffolk County locations: Central Islip, Riverhead, and Hauppauge. Our dental offices are equipped with wider doorways to easily accommodate wheelchairs; track lighting, and fiber optic tools with lights. The use of fiber-optic tools in dentistry are an evidence-based technology which allow dental staff to correctly identify a wide-range of oral conditions (Strassler & Pitel, 2014).
As a Federally Qualified Health Center, LISH offers a sliding fee discount to eligible patients for our dental services. We also accept Medicaid and a variety of dental insurance plans. LISH currently participates with DentaQuest, PHP/Benecare, and Healthplex. Call us today to schedule an appointment!
