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.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
