NYS Governor Executive Order Allows Reopening of ECMC Department of Dentistry, Oral Oncology and Maxillofacial Prosthetics Office Locations

BUFFALO, NY—The Department of Dentistry, Oral Oncology and Maxillofacial Prosthetics at the Erie County Medical Center, and the Buffalo General location at High Street, have remained open for emergencies throughout the COVID 19 pandemic. Governor Cuomo’s updated 5/31/20 Executive Order now allows for Dental practices—including ECMC’s Dental services—to reopen for non-urgent procedures as well.  ECMC will continue to practice with additional precautions to help protect against the spread of COVID 19, and some procedures remain limited at this time.

Those individuals in need of a Dental/Oral Oncology appointment should call one of the three ECMC office locations:

  • Department of Dentistry: 898-3189
  • Department of Oral Oncology and Maxillofacial Prosthetics: 898-1461
  • ECMC Dental Center at Buffalo General Hospital: 859-4180
