We are returning to normal office hours! In keeping with the governor's and the Illinois State Dental Society's recommendations, routine dental procedures may resume.
We have installed a HEPA air purifier and all of our clinical staff will use approved Personal Protection Equipment (PPE). We also use the UV light to disinfect all of our rooms. We installed plexiglass in our front check out area.
We have to maintain social distancing in our reception room so only three patients can sit at any given time and will be asked to wear a face covering while waiting. Any further patients will wait in their car and can be called or texted when they can be seated.
Like our staff, we will take your temperature and ask you series of questions. We will ask you to wash yours hands and rinse with a hydrogen peroxide solution to reduce your oral microbial count.
Our office has always treated every patient as if they have an infectious disease, so to safeguard your health, we steam autoclave all instructions to ensure sterility. The rooms are thoroughly disinfected and surface protection is replaced between each patient. As we are tailoring our procedures regarding the coronavirus, we may need a bit more time to clean the room in between patients. We ask that you please be patient as we provide a safe space for your treatment!
We are in a whole new world since this pandemic began. Several of you have been rescheduled many time to accommodate new directives from the state government and our local dental society. These mandates and recommendations remain changeable as time goes on. Thank you for your continued understanding during these difficult times.
