We’d like to share with you the measures we have taken to ensure your safety at Chicago Beautiful Smiles, here is a video we prepared COVID-19

Physical office modifications:

* Each treatment room, and throughout the office, there are air filtration systems that remove air borne particles smaller than the COVID-19 virus

* Additional disinfection of all surfaces with hypochlorous acid

* Temperature and pulse oximeter checks to ensure no one presents with a fever or a low oxygen saturation level

* All team members are wearing masks at all times, our clinical team uses KN95 masks along with face shields

* Our scrubs are professionally laundered and our jackets are replaced throughout the day to protect against cross contamination

* All team members are screened daily for symptoms, temperature and oxygen saturation levels

We want you to know that we will be ready for you, as we always have in the past, always considering your safety first.

Yours for better, and safer, dentistry,

Dr. Christopher Ching and Dr. Dennis Hartlieb
