New York dental clinic closes indefinitely after weeks of day-to-day operations

Lake Placid, N.Y.-based Adirondack Health Dental Care is closed indefinitely after staff resignations last week, according to a June 16 report by Adirondack Daily Enterprise.

The health system was "pushing hard" to close the facility May 1 due to the clinic causing Adirondack Health to lose approximately $350,000 annually. 

Because the clinic's closure plan has not received a written approval from the New York Department of Health, the facility has been operating mostly on a day-to-day basis since May.

Adirondack Health Dental Care has about 2,000 active patients, who have been instructed to contact Adirondack Health's health information department to transfer existing medical records, the report said.
