Mason Motz, 6, was at the dentist’s office to get teeth pulled when Dr. Amy Luedemann-Lazar noticed a different issue: He was tongue-tied.


Dr. Scott Asnis’ dental office in Bellmore, New York, looks a lot different than it did in February.

Today, after checking in inside – where you and the receptionist are separated by a plastic barrier – you are asked to wait in your car until your dentist is ready to see you.

Once called back, you must don a face mask, while dental technicians take your temperature and have you wash your hands thoroughly.
