This past weekend, Governor Pritzker made a confusing statement. He stated that dental practices will be able to open on a non-emergency basis right away.
This statement was completely contradicting the states mid-March mandate, stating that dental offices are to open on a emergency basis only.
Basically patients that were experiencing pain, swelling, and infection.
The confusion created this mass hysteria in the dental community, asking how are we supposed to work when we are not protected. This concern got all the way to the Director of Public Health and to the Governor.
The very next day, the governor clarified that dentists are to open on an emergency basis only. Just as he stated in his original March mandate.
Right now, we are working on a protocol that has been prepared and recommended by the American Dental Association.
The protocol and guidelines may seem rigid and over the top. But these guidelines are designed to keep all of our Dente Community SAFE.
If you are having dental issues please call 773-292-1911. We are seeing emergency patients and I would love to help.
