We are pleased to announce our office will reopen on Monday, June 8. The State of Illinois allowed dental offices to reopen this week, but we are busy making changes to our office to make it the safest in the area for your comfort and peace of mind. We have been diligently getting ready for you and we are taking every precaution for your safety! We have gone well beyond the CDC, American Dental Association and State of Illinois recommendations for dental offices prior to reopening . Some of the changes you will notice immediately upon entering our office, others are in place quietly behind the scenes. We have always maintained the strictest sterilization standards, but now it is even more important due to how our world has changed so quickly this year.
Our reopening will be a staged process, as we will be caring for only one patient at a time in order to maintain strict sterilization protocols both during your appointment and between each patient visit.
Some of our additions:
We have installed a new state of the art air filtration system in the entire office to clean and filter the air 24/7.
All staff will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment, including administrative staff.
Each room will be fully sterilized between each patient. Because we have individual treatment rooms (unlike most offices that are open concept) we can more effectively sterilize each closed room. We have added special hypochlorous acid fogging in each treatment room between patients which has been used in Japan with great success. It disinfects all viruses, bacteria and spores yet is chemical free, non-toxic and all-natural and 100 percent safe for humans.
All high traffic areas such as the reception areas, hallways and bathrooms will be disinfected a minimum of 6 times a day.
The office will be noticeably sleeker and decluttered, with no magazines, refreshments and other retouchable objects until Covid is no longer an issue. Even pens will be single use and you can keep yoursJ
We will practice social distancing by allowing only one person in the reception area at a time.
Beginning June 1, we will have Teledentistry added to our office services. Consultations can be done over the internet for both existing and new patients. Further details about that new service will be coming to you soon.
These are just some of the improvements we’ve made to keep you healthy and safe. Starting June 1, we will begin scheduling patients for the following week and forward.
