To Our Valued Patients,

There is no higher priority than the safety of our patients and employees. We are in close communication with medical professionals, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), government agencies, and internal teams to stay on top of this evolving situation. According to the most recent information from the CDC, for most people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low, when taking reasonable precautions.

As a result, we have enhanced some of our cleaning procedures in the interest of our patients' and employees' health and safety. We continue to follow all the recommended guidelines and precautions.

Dental office cleaning: We use disposables as much as possible. All instruments that can be sterilized are after each and every patient. We use an autoclave that heats our instruments to a minimum of 250° F for at least 30 minutes by using saturated steam under at least 15 psi of pressure. We use an EPA approved, hospital-grade disinfectant in the restroom and dental operatories.

Also, the office is equipped with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air)filter, which filters out recirculated air to remove airborne particles. HEPA filtersare also used in hospitals to provide patients with clean air.In addition, and perhaps more importantly, we have installed 9 continuous UV-C air purification systems in each clinical workspace. These eradicate airborne viruses and bacteria.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we have taken to keep you and every patient safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 815-544-3111.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
