Dear our valued patients,

We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.
Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.
You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:
- Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
- Once you arrive for your appointment, please call our office to check in before heading into the building. We kindly ask no additional visitors attend appointments unless absolutely necessary.
- We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
- Once checked in, a staff member will take your temperature.
- Before we seat you in the chair, we will ask you to use a pre-procedural mouth rinse to help reduce microbes in your mouth.
- Your clinical team will have the appropriate PPE; this includes gowns, face shields, masks, etc.
 -Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment. New protocols require extra time per patient, your appointment may be a little longer than usual. Please be patient with us.
- There have been HEPA air filters placed in every treatment room to help capture any particles in the air.

We have installed High Volume Evacuation systems and Extraoral Dental Suctions to help eliminate any aerosols created.
We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 815-717-8793 or visit our website at lifetimefamilydentist.com.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.
Sincerely,
Dr. Pal and staff
