New Teeth Chicago Dental Implant Center has realigned available services to provide emergent and essential dental care for patients with immediate health needs, including pain or infection. We are complying with all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), American Dental Association (ADA), clinical, and local health orders and guidelines in our area.
With our nation and our office responding to the current threat posed by the COVID-19 outbreak, we are reaching out to you to share some perspective on receiving dental care with New Teeth Chicago Dental Implant Center. As with any rapidly developing situation—and especially in one with geographically-specific dynamics—we are working around the clock to consider new information and to always operate in the best interest of our patients, our communities, and along with our fellow healthcare professionals. Our intention in writing is to provide some fact-based education on the scope of that care and the confidence that can come from that information.
How do we serve? Over 37 million people in the US—~15% of the adult population—suffer with severe tooth loss and the clinical conditions that are often associated with it — decay, infection, significant pain, and related systemic health issues. For these patients, the choice to pursue treatment is often NOT an elective option, but rather an ESSENTIAL, and sometimes EMERGENT, decision to remove infection, relieve pain, and restore health.
This leads us to why we remain open in our location. New Teeth Chicago remains open to serve a patient population who critically needs us. One of the primary controllable contributors to Emergency Room visits is dental-related; removing options for those in need may unnecessarily divert them to the overburdened ERs dealing with the coronavirus. We take great precaution in providing a safe environment for treatment: above our normal standard of care, we have heightened our already robust cleanliness protocols and we strictly follow CDC guidelines. New Teeth Chicago Dental is here to serve you now and in the future. We will continue to do so, in the safest and most responsible manner possible. And that is who we are together.
