To our patients, referring doctors, and community,

Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is dedicated to the care and well-being of our patients, staff, and community.  In accordance with the established guidelines provided by our state and federal officials, as well as the health care guidelines from state and national dental societies and the CDC, we will be focusing our care on alleviating urgent and emergent dental needs.  Consequently, treatment will only be provided in order to alleviate pain, infection, or when delay in care would result in harm to the patient.  Also, in order to provide a location that is safe for our patients, staff, and doctors, we will be limiting care to individuals who are not manifesting symptoms of a respiratory illness (e.g. fever, cough, sore throat, or shortness of breath).  If you have questions regarding your care, please call our office (708-448-8670) and we will help address your needs and concerns.

When you visit our office, you will experience new precautions to help us provide as safe of an experience as possible.  Also, we will be limiting access to the office to only patients and one guardian of a minor.  We apologize if these steps seem severe, however, we consider your safety our top priority.  At this time, in order to limit the need for return visits to our office, we will try to perform same-day treatment.  Therefore, when you call to schedule your appointment, please be ready to provide as much medical, dental, and insurance information as possible (e.g. health history, medications, allergies, insurance policy numbers), as this will expedite your in-office care.  

Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is proud to provide care to our community and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you during these exceptional times.

Sincerely,
 
The Staff and Doctors at Midwest Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Important Information Regarding COVID-19

In recognition of ongoing news reports and the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus, we realize our patients have questions. As dedicated health care professionals, we want you to know that we remain as diligent as ever in protecting the health and safety of our patients and staff. Our practice strictly adheres to and exceeds the standards for infection control by wearing personal protective gear, using hospital-grade disinfectants, practicing the latest sterilization protocols, and more. Every effort we have in place is to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. We want you to know that we are monitoring this situation very closely, and we will keep you updated regularly.

Symptoms of coronavirus are reported as flu-like, with varying degrees of severity. While we do not know everything about this virus to date, individuals who are elderly and/or immunocompromised appear to be the most at risk of a severe infection. To ensure your health and safety, and the health and safety of everyone at our practice, please reschedule your appointment if you or a member of your household has a cough, fever, and/or flu-like symptoms. In addition, please reschedule your appointment if you have traveled to any areas within the past 14 days that are at high risk for contracting the coronavirus.

We thank you in advance and extend our gratitude for your understanding and cooperation. Together, we can help keep everyone as safe and healthy as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office, and one of our staff members will be more than happy to assist you.
