This practice was established over 30 years ago and has moved to larger quarters twice. It is now located in a 2,800 sq. ft., all brick building, located in a medical and professional area. The current building was built in 1990 and has five operatories with a possibility of a sixth.
The practice provides hygiene, restorative, crown and bridge, implant restorations, removable prosthodontics, and endodontics. Orthodontic and oral surgery referrals are located within the city limits.
We have two hygienists that work four days per week, each. We also have one full-time and one part-time dental assistant and one full time and one part time front office staff. All of our staff are all long term, very loyal, and are dedicated to providing superior care to our patients.
The dentist treats patients three days per week with a relaxed pace. We participate in the State of Illinois PPO, along with a few other smaller PPOs. We do not participate in any Managed Care programs or Medicaid. The office is fully computerized with digital X-ray in each operatory and a centrally located digital orthopantomograph. Each operatory is equipped with a computer terminal.
We have excellent patient retention, and receive new patients through “word of mouth” referrals. Most recall appointments are scheduled before the patient leaves the office.
The office includes a large waiting room and front office, five treatment rooms, as well as a large lab that could easily be converted to a sixth operatory. It also has a dedicated sterilization room, as well as a private office for the dentist, along with an additional private office and consultation room. The staff lounge has a refrigerator, microwave and table. There is one patient and one staff bath.
