Dear Valued Patients:

UPDATED NOTICE 3-27-20

The Department of Health has now modified the mandate to allow dentists to see certain emergencies without a negative pressure isolation room. Thank you for your emails!

The COVID-19 is a highly contagious disease, and dental procedures create a water spray which is one way the disease is spread. There is an elevated risk of contracting COVID-19 during dental procedures.

Therefore, we are only able to treat patients with true emergencies. If you are a patient of record and have a true emergency, you may call Dr. Fishbaine at 814-238-6800. If you have traveled to an area that has a high rate of COVID-19, have a cough, fever, upper respiratory infection, or been in contact with someone with those symptoms, Dr. Fishbaine will discuss options with you over the phone.

We hope you stay safe and well and look forward to seeing you when COVID-19 is on the decline and we are authorized to open.


 

UPDATED NOTICE 3-23-20

According to the PA Department of Health, all dental offices are to close – even for emergencies. If you have a dental emergency and are in pain, you may call your doctor or go to the Emergency Room at MNMC. Physicians and ERs are not equipped to treat dental emergencies, but we are NOT authorized to open. Please call the DOH at 717-787-9857 or email jmcgarrity@pa.gov if you have concerns about the DOH policy.

 


 

In an effort to support national efforts to fight the COVID- 19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community:

  • We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a way to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
  • Your health, and the health of our dedicated staff, matters to us, so going forward we will suspend all non-emergency, non-priority care for a period of time yet to be determined.
  • Patients will be seen for urgent and emergency dental needs.


We will contact you soon to reschedule routine hygiene appointments. If you are already scheduled for an urgent issue, we will contact you before your appointment to discuss your health status, health screening protocols and confirm whether the appointment should be kept. Of course, please call us right away if you have a dental emergency, need immediate care, or would like to reschedule an appointment.

The safety and well-being of our patients continues to be our primary concern. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community and keep you up-to-date regarding our plans to reopen for business as usual.

I urge you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We can be reached by phone at 814-238-6800 or by email to drfishbaine@comcast.net and will respond as soon as we can.

Thank you,
Steve Fishbaine, DDS, FAGD and staff

What Our Customers Are Saying…

Kim Fleck I’m so pleased with my new smile! Coming into the office in a bit of a dire situation, Dr. Fishbaine and his staff worked with me and my schedule to expedite the process as much as possible. I appreciated how all steps of the process were explained and never felt like I was making a decision I did not understand. So refreshing to deal with a top-notch dentist and staff!!

Angelo GregoriI travel from Dubois to see Dr. Fishbaine because he is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has improved my smile dramatically in 2 years. He is knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, a perfectionist, and he really cares about his patients.

I was referred to Dr. Fishbaine from my periodontal office which tells me that Dr. Fishbaine is well respected. My experiences in the office have been amazing. The hygienists are great, and the office staff is wonderful and courteous. I also appreciate that they submit all the claims to my insurance company. They make it easy, and I always have a pleasant experience at my dental office.

After emergency surgery, Dr. Fishbaine was able to see me only a few hours later for a fix. Dr. Fishbaine and his staff were very attentive and wanted to make sure I would be happy with the results now and in the future. I am very confident in my smile now and I think it looks better than it ever has! Thank you!

Michelle Miller-DayDr. Fishbaine and his staff are exactly what you hope for when receiving dental care. I tell others, “I know it’s weird to say you love your dentist. But I do!” I love his talented work. He was able to replace the substandard cosmetic dentistry I had previously received with realistic, comfortable, and durable new crowns. I love how friendly he and his staff are and I love that I can now be proud of my smile. Thank you Dr. Fishbaine!

Through my first 40 years of life, going to the dentist was one of my least favorite and most fearful of activities … until I came upon Dr. Fishbaine.  My first visit to his office was over 30 years ago. I was overwhelmed by his patience, gentility and overall general concern for my comfort to the extent that, not only did I start to see him on a regular basis, but, as soon as my kids turned 2 and 3 years old, I had no qualms about taking them for Check-ups and, not surprisingly, they, as well of my Dear Wife, Dianna, just loved him!

When I retired last year, after three decades of successful cleanings, fillings, extractions, replacements, bridges, etc., I finally decided to go ahead and get some implants. He and his efficient professional staff (which includes his wonderful wife, Penni) more than adequately prepared me for was to come. He worked with one of the local dental surgeons to make my smile more beautiful than it had ever been!

Stephen Fishbaine is not just a dentist, he is wonderful human being who happens to be a master at his craft, which he approaches with the mindset of an artist.
