The summer flew by! Most schools will go from being virtual to in person learning. So, it's important to plan ahead.
Schedule your children’s “back to school” dental appointments. Regular check-ups are the best way to catch problems early.
Do you need a back-to-school dental form? A dental exam form is required by Illinois State Law for entrance to kindergarten, second, sixth and ninth grades students.
Had a great summer of family fun? It's time to get back on a regular routine schedule. Remember the two minute two times a day for brushing with a fluoride toothpaste and daily flossing. Rinsing with a fluoride mouthwash is also helpful.
Starting to pack school lunches? Think healthy! Whole grains, milk, yogurts, fruits and veggies are are great, not only for dental health but overall health. Try to avoid packing sugary or sticky foods. Check out the "in school" options for potential allergens. Considering our children will be wearing masks for the majority of their day, it may be wise to pack an extra bottle of water to help them hydrate.
Pack extra masks and hand sanitizer. We know the majority of schools will have adequate hand sanitizer and appropriate hand washing stations, but it is best to send your child with their own extra masks that they prefer.
Here's to a great school year for everyone!
We are available for virtual visits, for new patients seeking information about our practice or their dental needs, and for our current patients who have questions about treatment. Please let us know if you would like to have a virtual consultation via a telemedicine platform. We look forward to meeting you soon!
We are thrilled to announce that we have added another layer of safety protection to our practice: a hypochlorous acid fogger.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients, our families and ourselves. One of the many different "looks" will be Margaret and I are now sporting face shields and different style masks.
According to the CDC, State of Illinois, and the Village of Lincolnwood, face coverings (masks or scarves) are required when entering any business. We will ask you to wear your mask upon entry to the office.

March 17, 2020, was the first day of the Illinois quarantine lockdown, and we closed our practice. As we passed the year anniversary of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are speaking to more patients who have had COVID and their experiences. It is not pleasant. It was not the flu. Everyone has a different reaction and some have symptoms that linger for months. It is so important for everyone to receive the vaccine when it is made available to your age group.
Although the State of Illinois will be opening up the State as of June 26, 2021, we still need to follow the CDC guidelines for mask-wearing. As a medical facility, masks are still required when you enter the practice and until treatment is started. We are still socially distancing in the practice and would like to remind all of our patients that your health and safety are our priority.
Please feel free to contact us either through our website, via email (email@example.com) via our Facebook page messenger, or simply leave a voice message at (847) 677-1101. If you need us, we will be available to you for teleconferencing, via What's App, Facebook Messenger, Skype and Zoom,
Do you need a preventive appointment? Has it been awhile? Are your gums bleeding or do you feel an unexplained twinge? Now is the perfect time to schedule! Clean teeth are always in season! Give us a call!
We have always followed the utmost in infection control for the safety of both you, our patients, and ourselves. We are continually upgrading our infection control procedures to ensure everyone's safety.
Please watch our Facebook page for updates and information about our new infection control systems!
Our most important job right now is to stay healthy. We are not only protecting ourselves but the people around us. With social distancing in full effect, it is more important than ever to practice good oral hygiene and prevent cavities. Remind your family about brushing for two minutes two times a day and flossing once every day. Using an antibacterial mouthwash is also a good precaution.
Want to disinfect your toothbrush? You can soak it in an antibacterial mouthwash for 30 seconds. For a homemade alternative, mix 2 teaspoons of baking soda in a cup of water.. Don't forget to change your toothbrush every three months, especially during these times of staying at home.
We have created a virtual tour of the office for those who are interested in joining our practice but COVID may be keeping you away. It is always nice to see where you are going! Check it out on Google Earth!

Professional quality dental care is a necessity for everyone, although being able to achieve it has not always been within reach, especially for those without dental benefit. Our Dental Priority Platinum solves that problem! We have a variety of plans, starting with two preventive visits a year, inclucing oral examinations, four bitewing radiographs, or full mouth radiograph as necessary, and two fluoride varnish treatments, all at a 25% savings to you and your family. Major and cosmetic dental treatments are 18% off, with no deductible or annual maximum. Each family member has different needs, so we offer different plans. We are unable to combine these plans if you have a current dental benefit..
We thank you for your trust and confidence and look forward to caring for your dental needs. Please call or email to schedule an appointment. Let us know if you have any dental concerns and how you feel about your smile. We will contact you to schedule an appointment. We are available virtually to discuss your dental needs prior to your first appointment. We are here for you!
