We do not offer virtual consultation services

Our authors (Dr David Chen) at aterva create a lot of oral health information but they are still practicing full time at our Long Island City dental practice. Our primary responsibility lies in providing world class care to our patients and the only feasible means of doing so is in-person.

It is not practical nor is it optimal to provide a diagnosis and treatment recommendations via a ZOOM call. There is so much information that is left out when you are unable to perform a clinical exam which ultimately results in sub-optimal care. Therefore our recommendation is to find a healthcare professional in-person near you for a proper consultation.

After all, this website is purely meant for information purposes as described on our medical disclaimer. It is not a substitute for an in-person medical consultation. Our aim is to encourage you to seek care by shedding light upon the unknown which in turn reduces your anxiety and hesitation in getting an appointment sooner. We want you to receive the best care possible.

In other words, please do not contact us about virtual consultation services since we do not provide one. We will respond back to all other inquiries though!

Thank you!

Dental Services

If you're in NYC and in need of a dentist, please schedule an appointment with our clinical dental practice, 1311 Jackson Ave Dental.

Our purpose at afterva, is to encourage you to seek in person care with a doctor. It's not meant to be a substitute for medical advice. Each situation is unique and that makes it impossible to diagnose and treat without a clinical exam.
