COVID-19 Update

Dear Patients,

​Oak Forest Family Dental has resumed scheduling all treatment types including cleanings as of June 8th! We are fully committed to providing excellent care in the safest environment. Therefore, we have not taken reopening lightly. We used the few weeks making mindful plans on how to safely reopen including office updates, infection control, streamlining processes, and scheduling. The safety and health of our patients and my team continue to be my first priority, and I am confident and proud of the way we have handled our practice during this time.

As always, we are fully committed to providing excellent care in the safest environment. Therefore, we are not taking reopening lightly. We have used the past few weeks making mindful plans on how to safely reopen including office updates, infection control, streamlining processes, and scheduling. The safety and health of our patients and my team continue to be my first priority, and I am confident and proud of the way we have handled our practice during this time.

We will continue to make updates as needed, but I wanted to provide an outline of our current response and changes you can expect when visiting our practice:

  • Scheduling - We are scheduling fewer appointments per day to reduce contact between patients.
  • Virtual Waiting Room - When you arrive for your scheduled appointment, we ask that you please remain in your car. When we have your treatment room prepared for you, we will call you at the mobile number we have on file. At this time, we also ask that you do not bring anyone inside the office with you unless you require assistance.
  • Screening team members - At the beginning of each shift, we will be screening our team members and taking temperatures.
  • Screening patients - Be prepared to answer screening questions on the phone when scheduling or confirming an appointment and also in person on the day of your appointment. We will have a sign on the door to remind everyone to be courteous and reschedule any appointment if you are feeling ill, and we will be taking temperatures of all patients prior to being seated.
  • Remodeling - We have placed sneeze guards at the front desk and divided the treatment rooms in the back.
  • Aerosol Precautions - Each treatment room now has a new high volume suction attachment with fully disposable mouthpieces which will improve evacuation of aerosols generated during procedures such as fillings and cleanings.
  • Air Purifiers - In each treatment room, we have installed air purifiers with 3-stage HEPA filters and UV sanitizing lights.
  • Personal Protective Equipment - You also will notice adjustments to our PPE at this time including respirator-type masks, full face shields, and hair coverings.
  • Infection Control - We will be extending our already excellent protocols to include non-clinical areas and items. This means we will be disinfecting door handles, front desk counters, and using protective disposable covers on frequently handled items such as iPads and clipboards. We have also removed all toys, coffee, and magazines from the waiting area.

I am so grateful to my team, and especially Helen, who are helping me navigate this time to best serve our patients and keep everyone safe and healthy! While I am so excited and ready to get back helping patients and doing the dentistry I love, it will be a slow and carefully planned start. To members of our annual savings plan, we will be automatically extending your membership by 4 months to ensure you can maximize your plan benefits. Thank you so much for your patience, cooperation, and support. Our practice only exists because of our amazing patients, and we can’t wait to see you soon!

Sincerely,
Dr. Carly

Michele Dyce

My first time with this dental office. I had an appointment with them before the COVID19 pandemic started. I had not have my teeth cleaned in in 2 1/2 years, due to no insurance. The office finally opened back up and I had an appointment set for September 1st. I NEEDED to get my teeth cleaned before then. I had even reached out to other dentist offices so that they could get me in sooner. My teeth REALLY needed a cleaning. I reached out and spoke to the Helen ( sweetest person) and explained that if they had any cancellations to please call me. They had a cancellation and the rest is history. They have a patient for LIFE. Everyone in the office is GREAT and PROFESSIONAL. I truly believe that things happen for a reason. They got me in early and my TEETH feel great! God Bless the Oak Forest Family Dental office.

I have been a long-time customer at Oak Forest Dental. I had moved twice since starting there, each home further from their office than the previous, but will not switch dental providers. The staff is organized, prepared and efficient. Their facilities have been beautifully updated. My treatments are completed skillfully and with care. I am comfortable there and confident that their competence will keep my mouth healthy through the years.
