On Reopening and More: Dr. Patel In the News

dental-health-expertsThe media rely on thought-leading practitioners to provide comments, context, and insights for their stories. We’re proud to be among the thought leaders in the dental community who take those calls and share our knowledge with the public through many media outlets. Most recently, we were proud to see Dr. Patel in the news talking about reopening preparations to prevent coronavirus, as well as general oral health.

Online Daily 24 on Reopening Preparations


Romeoville Dental Center’s efforts at the forefront of sanitization practices fostered some media attention. A June 16, 2020 article in Online Daily 24 provided a collection of comments from leading dentists, including Dr. Patel, about safe reopening processes. In the article, Dr. Patel highlights the importance of technology investment and sanitization to keep staff and patients safe. Read the full article here.

Best Company Article on Oral Health

We also caught Dr. Patel in the News in a recent blog post by Best Company, an independent and impartial review site. The article, dated June 10, 2020, discussed saving money through good preventative oral health practices. The article categorized good oral health practices into five categories: Eating, Brushing, Flossing, Swishing, and Visiting, with recommendations from Dr. Patel in each category, including:

  1. Eating: Limit your coffee consumption, and stay hydrated especially as you age. 
  2. Brushing: Replace your regular toothbrush every two to three months, use one with soft brushes, and don’t press too hard to avoid gum damage.
  3. Flossing: Never let up on flossing, even as you age. Alternatives like floss with handles or water flossing can be easier to handle. 
  4. Swishing: This helps maintain healthy gums to prevent periodontal disease, which can increase the chances of other major diseases. 
  5. Visiting: Visit the dentist twice a year to stay clean and healthy, and address any issues early.

For more tips and Dr. Patel’s full quotes, read the article by Alicia Stevens on the Best Company blog.

I have been seeing Dr. Patel since he was in Orland/Palos when I was a teenager. I continued to see him at his practice in Romeoville after he moved. I have never had any issues with him as my dentist and feel adequately cared for. My husband and children also come to this practice.

The dental hygienist that does our cleanings, Lou, is a gem. My children also sometimes see Dr. Nina and we love her. When you call in or check out, Leslie is friendly and pleasant.
