The Illinois State Dental Society told all Illinois dentists to shut down for the next two weeks, starting today, Monday March 16th.

The Dental Society has says dentists should:

  • Treat only patients requiring emergency dental procedures.
  • Postpone elective dental treatment and procedures.
  • Preserve personal protective equipment (PPE) for emergency dental situations.  This action will also preserve the limited supply of PPE so it can be used for urgent and more complex medical care that will be needed in our healthcare system.
  • Communicate the utmost importance of the health and safety of our patients, the dental team and our community in implementing these measures

Dentists will begin rescheduling all patients beginning tomorrow and ask that you be patient during this high volume call period.

You can follow updates and read more on the ISDS website.
