Romeoville Dental Center: The More Things Change

New year 2020 change to 2021 concept - changing black cubes with coronavirus and syringe icon

State of the Romeoville Office One Year After Reopening during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Exactly one year ago in June of 2020, we carefully reopened our office after nearly three months of COVID-19 shutdown. In some ways, it merely required – or allowed – us to highlight the sterilization and safety practices we have always prioritized. In other ways, the requirements of the CDC, State, and local officials felt strange, yet just as necessary.    

Over the past year, we’ve seen most if not all of our patients return for their regular visits, and had a lot of new patients visit as well. We are so grateful for this community full of folks who take care of themselves and each other. 

Even as businesses begin to move back toward full capacity and people begin to gather in ways more like what we were used to before the pandemic, we must all remain vigilant to keep it that way. We thought this one-year anniversary of reopening was a perfect time to provide a reminder/update about what has changed and which precautions remain in place.

What Has Changed Over the Past Year?

Two big things have changed since we first reopened, and we’re thrilled about both of them!

  1. We got vaccinated against COVID-19. And not just that. Many of you did too! That makes us all safer and provides much-needed, very welcome peace of mind even as we maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and safety.
  2. For much of the year, we were prioritizing only the most critical dental services and postponing cosmetic procedures. We are delighted to report that for some time now we have been back to full service, including all critical, preventative, and cosmetic procedures.

What Safety and Sanitization Measures Are Still In Place?

Most of the measures we put in place a year ago remain in effect. That’s partly because they are just best practices for the health and wellbeing of our staff and our patients. But some are still “extra” and we’re OK with that. As long as we still have patients who have yet to be vaccinated, including most children, we want to do all we can to keep them safe from the Coronavirus.

For a complete overview of our COVID-19 precautions, check out our blog post from one year ago, Always Sterile, Covid Safe. Here’s a summary of what we have not changed:

  • Following CDC Guidance for Dental Care Facilities
  • Sanitizing equipment, surfaces, and our hands constantly, as always, with leading sterilization practices 
  • Minimizing the use of aerosols and using air purifiers
  • Wearing protective face coverings, eyewear, and gloves
  • Requiring patients to wear face coverings when not receiving treatment
  • Pre-screening via email, text check-in, and remote waiting
  • Using a sanitized tablet in place of paperwork
  • Maintaining social distance when possible

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!
