WIth the coronavirus panic taking over, it’s easy to fear common activities like going to the dentist due to the fear of catching the virus. Every few years there seems to be a new virus that pops up and catches the media’s attention. On a bright note, the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) notes that the dental community as a whole has already been doing a great job at protecting patients from the virus because of state-of-the-art infection control practices that were in place long before this outbreak. 

While we are temporarily closed for two weeks that started on March 19th, we want our patients to get a better understanding of our approach. 

A Closer Look at COVID-19

Symptoms of coronavirus also referred to as COVID-19, typically appear 2-14 days after exposure and include shortness of breath, fever and cough. Coughing or sneezing are the two primary ways that the virus is being transferred. It’s important to note that the seasonal flu has many of the same symptoms, so if you have access to a test, take advantage of doing so.

General Recommendations to the Public

The CDC recommends washing your hands often and for at least 20 seconds at a time. You should opt for an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains a minimum of 60% alcohol if you don’t have access to soap and water. Avoid touching your face with unwashed hands and stay home from work when you are feeling sick. Disinfect your phone, computer and other areas that you touch often. 

Your Safety is Our Top Priority

Our team at Chicago Beautiful Smiles always puts our patients first. Trust that our practice is doing everything that we can to ensure patients return to a clean, sterile office environment. We have reviewed the best health practices with our staff to ensure they are continuing to implement these precautions. Infection control in addition to our standard health procedures is a great way to ward off the virus. 

We aim to stay proactive and calm to continue providing our patients with the highest-quality dental services in Wilmette and surrounding areas.

Real Patient Reviews

I have been going to this practice for several years now. I seemingly never have to wait when I arrive at the office and they are all very professional. Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching have been terrific. In addition to doing great dental work, each has a great rapport with their patients. All of their assistants have been top notch as well.

I recently met with Dr. Ching to have some dental work done, and had an exceptional experience at this office! I usually hate going to the dentist, but this experience was different–this office is hands-down, THE nicest dental facilitiy I have ever seen.

- Shaun F.

This dental office is something I haven’t seen before. I had many past dental experiences at other dental offices (unfortunately not good) and finally I found Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Hartlieb had helped me restore my teeth to a beautiful smile.

- Natasa R.

I am a loyal patient for over (yikes!) 20 years because I appreciate the time, skill and patience of the entire team. As proof of my gratitude, I live in the city and reverse commute every six months for my appointment.

- Dennis H.

Dr. Hartlieb is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. He has transformed my smile into something of beauty. In fact, many people comment on how beautiful my teeth are who do not even know that I have had major dental work performed. I used to never want to smile that large before, but now I smile as big as possible when photographed.

- Fran L.

I always have a great experience when I go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. The staff is amazing and Dr. Hartlieb and Dr. Ching are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is incredible and I feel like I’m being treated with the best technology in the dental industry. Go to Chicago Beautiful Smiles for a consultation and I guarantee you will go back time and time again. It does not get any better in the Chicago area.

- Antonio S.

I had a great experience with Dr. Ching – very professional and thorough in his craft. I had been seeing my previous dentist for the past 15 years; however, I am ready to make the permanent switch to Chicago Beautiful Smiles. Dr. Ching is great at explaining the procedures he was performing and made my visit comfortable.
