Industry-leading COVID-19 Protection:

Here are the steps we have taken to ensure your safety

  1. All eligible staff have been vaccinated.
  2. We have procured all the recommended PPE. N95 masks, gowns, and face shields.
  3. We have installed hospital antimicrobial curtains around each room. This allows us to contain the treatment in the room being used.
  4. We have added two medical-grade air purifiers to cleanse the air multiple times an hour.
  5. We are using UVC lights to disinfect the rooms after each use.
  6. There will be fewer patients in the office at a time. All patients will be asked to remain in their vehicles until we are ready for them.
  7. Every person will be asked before coming to the office to confirm they are symptom-free and are not COVID positive so far as they know.
  8. Everyone will have their temperature taken and will be required to rinse with hydrogen peroxide before the treatment.

After nearly a year of using these precautions, not a single individual, staff or patient, has contracted COVID from being in the office. We don’t think there is a safer dental office in all of the Chicago area. Call (708) 849-4400 to make an appointment
