COVID-19 Update on patient care
Dear R Family Dental Patients,
Update 4/1/2020: Due to the recent American Dental Association recommendations (link here) concerning COVID – 19, we have made these changes: For the next 4 weeks (today through 4/30/2020) a dentist will be available to treat dental emergencies only unless otherwise notified by our office.
If you are experiencing dental pain please call our office (708-383-9099). Click here for more information from the American Dental Association ADA on what constitutes a dental emergency. During this time you may also call to schedule future appointments for routine dental care. If needed our dentists can be available via a video conference to answer any of your questions. You may call or text Dr. Gene (708-989-0072) or Dr. David (708-227-4280) and leave a detailed description including your name and specific need.

We understand that this is an evolving global situation, we are being proactive and staying knowledgeable by closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), the American Dental Association (ADA) the Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS) and our local health departments.
We wanted to comfort our patients by letting them know we are following our established cleaning protocol by the CDC, WHO, ADA and ISDS (Illinois State Dental Society) within our dental office, including:
Regularly disinfecting dental chairs and surfaces in our operatories between patients
Disinfecting and wiping down our waiting room area, bathrooms, and surfaces that are frequently contacted. (Ex. door handles, keyboards and mice, countertops, and community areas)
Hand sanitizer will be available in our waiting room
Hand washing instructions will be posted in our bathrooms
Temperature taken when you arrive for your appointment
Mouth Rinsing with Hydrogen Peroxide for 15 seconds.
Ensuring the health and safety of our communities is our highest priority. If you are feeling under the weather and are experiencing any cold/flu like symptoms please stay home and contact our office to let us know you are unable to make your appointment. (708) 383-9099
We hope this message finds you all in great health and we are looking forward to caring for you all at your next appointment! Thank you for being a part of R Family!
