Dentistry Today


ProHEALTH Dental and the Mount Sinai Health System opened their first affiliated dental office in Long Island City, Queens, NY, on November 9. This office was designed with eight treatment rooms featuring the latest dental technology to provide the highest-quality general and specialty services for patients of all ages, according to the partners.

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 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, with an eye on the connections between oral health and systemic health.

“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.”
