Our Covid-19 Health & Safety Protocols

The health and safety of our patients, team, and community is and always has been our number one priority. Scroll down for information about our health & safety protocols.

You may come directly to the office to check in for your appointment, we are no longer requiring our patients to remain in their car and call when they reach our parking lot.

As per the requirement currently in Illinois, facial masks are required to assist in everyone’s protection. Upon entry we ask that you utilize the hand sanitizer before sitting down. There will be a short series of questions we will ask. This is the same series that were responded to when making the appointment regarding recent medical status and travel history. We will be taking a forehead temperature scan and fingertip pulse oximeter measurement before beginning any treatment. If you are sick, please stay home.

We are checking ourselves as well. Each day before staff or Dr. Hasken begins seeing patients, we take temperatures and pulse oximetry measurements. You will also likely notice more personal protective equipment in use (PPE) in the form of KN95 or N95 masks, face shields and gowns or jackets in addition to the gloves and eye protection in use. We have a UV air cleaner in the heating and cooling system in the office to help with air purification. We are paying extra attention to the public space.

The reception area including furniture surfaces, door handles, pens, counters etc. are being wiped down several times per day with disinfectant. There are fewer chairs in the reception area to allow for social distancing. We will minimize the amount of time spent by patients with other patients in the reception area.

I know these continue to be challenging times. We are moving forward with the utmost concern for patient and staff health. I appreciate the confidence patients have shown in trusting us with dental health care. We will continue to stay abreast of the most current recommendations from the reputable sources such as the CDC, NIOSH and ADA as well as the local entities such as Illinois Department of Public Health and McHenry Health Department. I welcome listening to any concerns you may have.
