ProHEALTH Dental—in collaboration with Mount Sinai Hospital and Henry Schein dental supply distributor—celebrated the grand opening of its new Long Island City facility with a ribbon cutting on Thursday.
ProHealth Dental, which currently serves Lake Success and Howard Beach, is debuting its Long Island City site this week. The company’s goal is to provide dental care that decreases a number of chronic ailments, such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
“We want to make sure that good oral health is key to overall wellness, which is why we are affiliated with Mount Sinai and ProHEALTH Health Systems,” said Sharon Treffeisen, the marketing director for ProHEALTH Dental.
Treffeisen said one element that makes the facility unique is that it provides all services under one roof, including specialists in all areas of dentistry and pediatrics.
“The Queens community is going to have access to multi-specialty, care so that children through grandparents can come here for cleaning or can come here for the most sophisticated coronal bridging implant work,” said Neil Karnofsky, a managing partner and chief dental officer at ProHEALTH Dental. “We have a relationship with Mount Sinai where we’re going to be integrating dental care and medical care together for the better overall health of the patient.”
The full story on ProHEALTH Dental’s new facility will be in next week’s Queens Tribune.
