We want to assure our patients that we have taken every precaution to make sure that our office environment is safe. In order to avoid crowding in the reception area, please come close to your appointment time.

New Covid-19 Pandemic Patient Disclosures and Procedures

 

New guidelines from the Illinois Dental Society recommend that:

  1. Prior to, as well as at, your appointment, we will ask questions regarding your health condition in accordance with a new Covid-19 Pandemic patient disclosure form.

  2. We also ask that you immediately wash your hands (or use hand sanitizer) upon entering our office, and again when leaving our office.

  3. We ask that you wear a face-covering in our office.

  4. A non-contact thermometer will scan your temperature before your appointment. We will not be able to see you if the temperature exceeds 100ºF or 38ºC.

  5. Social distancing (6 feet or 2 meters) needs to be maintained in our reception room. You are welcome to wait in your car; we will call when we are ready to see you.
