Operating as usual

Good news: we will be reopening this Monday, June 8! We have already reached out to many patients who were waiting for appointments, but please feel free to call if you have been awaiting treatment and haven't heard from us. For the first month, only our doctors will be returning to work; our hygienists are scheduled to return starting on Tuesday, July 7. We will be prioritizing emergency, urgent, and ongoing care, especially during this first month.

Patient safety has always been our top priority, and because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are introducing new infection control measures to keep our patients and staff as safe as possible. These guidelines were created based on the recommendations of the CDC, the Illinois Department of Public Health, and the American Dental Association:

-Patients must wear a mask at all times inside the building, except for when they are actively receiving treatment. Face masks will be provided to those who do not have them. Please try to bring your own mask, as we have a limited supply.

-Upon entry, all patients must sanitize their hands, be given temperature checks, and be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. Those who exhibit symptoms will be rescheduled.

-Waiting room capacity has been significantly limited. After checking in, if there are no seats available, or if you do not wish to wait in the waiting room, please wait in your vehicle and we will call you when it is time to come in. While in the waiting room, please maintain a minimum of 6 feet of social distancing.

-Use of the waiting room is restricted to patients only. Similarly, only patients will be invited to the treatment rooms. While exceptions exist (caregivers, parents of very young children, etc.), we must keep the number of people in the building and in our treatment rooms to a minimum.

-We have provided our staff with new, comprehensive personal protective equipment and have installed air purifiers throughout the building. We will also be regularly sanitizing all common areas throughout the building.

-Due to our new sanitization requirements, it will take longer to properly clean our treatment rooms after each patient. Because of this, we will be seeing fewer patients throughout the day, and our ability to fit patients in “on the side” will be significantly curtailed. Unfortunately, this means that wait times for appointments may be longer than usual.

We understand that these measures may prove difficult or frustrating, but they are in place to protect both your safety and that of our staff. We ask for your cooperation in these challenging times, and we look forward to seeing you on June 8 and beyond.

We'd like to welcome the newest member of the Lockport Dental Group, Dr. Tom Ross! Dr. Ross has been a fixture of the Lockport community for many years, and it is both a pleasure and a privilege to welcome him aboard. He's looking forward to seeing both old and new faces as we prepare to reopen.

Due to the extension of the Illinois stay-at-home order, we will be providing emergency treatment only through the end of May. If you have a May appointment for routine care, please remain at home at that time. We are in the process of contacting our patients to reschedule those appointments. If you have a dental emergency, please call our office and we will respond as quickly as possible.

We understand that this is a stressful time, and we understand and share your frustration with our present inability to render routine dental care. When the time comes to reopen fully, we will deliver treatment as quickly and efficiently as possible while doing everything possible to provide a safe environment for both our patients and our staff.

We appreciate your patience in these difficult times, and offer our best wishes for safety and good health.

UPDATE:

The Illinois State Dental Society has issued guidance that, due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, all dental offices in the state should suspend all non-emergency and inessential dental care for at least the next two weeks, March 17 to March 31. We will be abiding by these guidelines, meaning that we will be open for emergency treatment only for at least the next two weeks.

We are in the process of calling and rescheduling patients, so please be patient and we will contact you. If you do not hear from us and your scheduled appointment time is approaching, please call us before coming in.

Please continue to abide by all sanitary precautions, including frequent, thorough hand washing, and please stay home and self-isolate if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or are in close contact with someone who is. We will continue to provide updates as events develop.

To our patients:

We are taking all appropriate safety precautions to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. At this time, we are remaining open during our normal business hours. We are regularly sanitizing common areas in addition to our normal infection control procedures. Any staff members who exhibit any symptoms of illness will be sent home for 14 days. Please consider the following to help us keep everyone as safe as possible:

-If you have received a positive diagnosis for COVID-19 and have visited our office in the past month, please alert us immediately.

-If you have been in contact with an individual known to have COVID-19, you should self-quarantine for 14 days and reschedule any appointments during that time.

-If you have recently traveled overseas, or are currently exhibiting flu-like symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing), please call us to reschedule any upcoming appointments. There will be no cancellation fees applied.

-Please do not bring any people to appointments who are not necessary for treatment or consent. The waiting room is limited at this time to patients, parents/guardians of minor or disabled patients, and caregivers. If this is not possible due to school closures etc., please call us and we will reschedule your appointment with no cancellation fees.

-Finally, if you would like to reschedule any appointment out of any other concern or a simple abundance of caution, please call us and we will be happy to do so with no cancellation fees.

This is a rapidly evolving situation and we understand the difficulties involved. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.

Due to the ongoing construction in downtown Lockport, our water supply will be shut off for the day this Thursday, August 16, at around 3:30 PM. Unfortunately, this means we must close the office and reschedule our patients set for that evening. We are in the process of contacting our patients; if you have an appointment this Thursday after 3 and you have not heard from us, please call our front desk and we will find the next available appointment time for you. All other days and times are not expected to be affected at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi, I am with Town Hall. We publish a monthly welcome Town Hall Guide that is mailed weekly to all new residents as they move into your community. Our Welcome Guide is going to feature only one exclusive business inside each category, and I am searching for a Dentist in your area to fill that spot. I would like to schedule a time when you are expecting me so that I may drop off a sample of our "Welcome Kit" and explain the program in greater detail. Please message me or for immediate assistance, feel free to call or text me on my cell which is listed below. Thanks. Anthony Wunsh (312) 764-7521
