Patient Care

We look forward to seeing you!

NYU College of Dentistry is providing care to our patients, by appointment only. While we aim to see all those with urgent needs as soon as possible, circumstances may require us to modify or defer certain treatments that pose a high risk.

In order to ensure the health and safety of our entire community, please note these important changes to our procedures:

face coverings

Face coverings are required at all times in NYU Dentistry buildings.

no visitors

Patients should arrive at appointments alone, unless the accompaniment of one caregiver/parent/guardian is necessary.

  • As part of our gradual, phased-in approach to resuming patient care services, we must limit occupancy levels in our buildings. So until further notice, we will not be allowing visitors to enter the College, unless their presence as a caregiver of a patient is required.

I am writing to you to express my complete satisfaction with the level of dental care that I have been receiving from my student dentist, Ms Kavita Patel. She has a most pleasing personality and is very respectful to a 74-year-old.

I feel very comfortable when she is examining and cleaning my teeth; she inspires trust. Her chair-side manner is very reassuring and her handling of dental instruments is very gentle. I appreciate that she keeps in touch with the faculty periodontist, Dr. Kye, and together they keep me abreast of the best plan for my dental health. She updates him whenever necessary. She also has Dr. Kye check her work before ending my appointment.

In my opinion she is already an outstanding dental practitioner. I still have one year left under her care, until she graduates, and will continue to enjoy that special care.
