Important Information Regarding COVID-19
At Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeons of Lake County our highest priority is your health and safety. As your healthcare partner, we will be available for emergency treatment over the next two weeks. We will be suspending elective surgeries until a time at which the CDC feels is safe. Below are the Illinois State Dental guidelines:
To ensure the safety of our patients, communities and dental team members, ISDS recommends the following measures that align with Gov. Pritzker’s mandates to limit the spread of COVID-19 beginning Tuesday, March 17th and continuing until risk of transmission is minimal:
- Treat only patients requiring emergency dental procedures
- Postpone elective dental treatment and procedures
- Preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for emergency dental situations. This action will also preserve the limited supply of PPE so it can be used for urgent and more complex medical care that will be needed in our healthcare system
If you have severe pain or swelling please call our office at 847-623-2830. Our doctors will continue to treat emergencies during this period.
