To the Patients of Hinsdale Dental,
Upon recommendation by the ISDS and Illinois State government, Hinsdale Dental will reopen for routine patient care beginning Tuesday, May 26th.
As we enter our busiest season with an additional two-month backlog of routine appointments and deferred treatment, we see a large influx of appointment requests. To accommodate as many appointments as possible, we have extended our hours. We have staff members working overtime while still adhering to new guidelines regarding patient capacity and maintaining up-to-date infection control procedures.
We encourage patients to take advantage of our “cancellation lists” as we anticipate pulling from those regularly. To encourage patients to continue arriving on time, we are instituting a new $50 fee for any failed appointments and appointments where the patient arrives more than 15 minutes late. We understand that situations arise; however, we must be given ample time to fill any appointment openings.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice. Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Any guidance given by these organizations will be reflected in changes you will see around the office. We’ve made these changes to protect our patients and staff. For example, our team will be wearing an increased amount of PPE during all procedures. We have also installed additional equipment in all operatories to aid in controlling aerosol contamination.Learn More
Also, we will request that all patients comply with IDPH recommendations and wear a facemask when entering the building. To reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one time, we appreciate you showing up as close to your actual appointment time as possible. We also request that patients arrive unaccompanied, when possible, to appointments.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to ensure patient safety. To schedule an appointment, please call our office at 630-323-5200.
Dr. Brown and the Team at Hinsdale Dental
