What are you doing to protect me during the Coronavirus outbreak? Is it safe for me to come to see the dentist during this time?
At Children's Center for Dentistry, the health and wellness of our patients and their families is always our number one priority. In light of national and state mandates and restrictions that are in effect to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS) has been closely monitoring and discussing the virus’s transmission and precautions that dentists should temporarily implement in their dental offices. As leaders in the healthcare profession, we must be proactive to limit the spread of this virus. Dentists are in one of the highest risk categories for transmission and contraction of the virus.
To ensure the safety of our patients, communities and dental team members, the ISDS has recommended the following measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 through dental offices for the two-week period beginning Tuesday, March 17 through Tuesday, March 31:
- Treat only patients requiring emergency dental procedures.
- Postpone elective dental treatment and procedures.
- Communicate the utmost importance of the health and safety of our patients, the dental team and our community in implementing these measures
Thank you for your understanding during this time, if you have an appointment scheduled with us during the dates listed above, please understand that our patient coordinators are working diligently to contact you and assist you in rescheduling said appointment.
**WE WILL STILL BE AVAILABLE FOR URGENT DENTAL NEEDS**
Stay Healthy and positive during this time, after all smiles are still more contagious than coronavirus!
