COVID-19 Update and Letter From The Practice

Our Offices Are Now Open

As we monitor the COVID-19 situation, we have updated our preventative measures to protect patients and staff.

View the: Enhanced Patient Protection Plan or call the office at (847) 251-5004  for more information.

Hope everyone is staying healthy and not been overly stressed with all the challenges we have all had over the last two months. Fortunately none of us or our families have had their health directly effected by COVID - 19. For those of you that have had any deaths or sickness in your family and friends we empathize with your pain or loss. For those of you that have had your livelihood and business effected and felt the humiliation and frustration of being told the hard work you have done to further your career and support yourself and your family is considered an extremely insulting term “non essential” we understand your frustration. What we are going through is not the “new normal” it is what we have to endure for now but we are all starting the road back to normalcy that we all crave.

We are considered essential healthcare business so we have been open and have seen many of you. We were only open to see patients with pain, infection, swelling and trauma. Under guidance from the Illinois Department of Public Health we are now clear to resume a full range of dental services. We will highlight temporary changes on the included overview page. We will have a backlog of patients for awhile so if you were one of the hundreds of our guests who had their appointments cancelled with no future appointment made we will be contacting you.

I realize more than ever that all of us at the office miss everyone dearly and it has been difficult not using the talents we have been given to serve you. I just turned 50 and now I definitely realize I am nowhere near retirement and not close to being ready. For now dropping into our office to talk, read magazines, grabbing a cup of coffee is not possible. Hugs and handshakes are gone for now too but we will not live in a dehumanized society void of human touch forever.

Since we are a small boutique dental office we are uniquely qualified to thrive during the shadow of COVID - 19. We are not a clinic so we do not see multiple patients at once and we have private enclosed treatment rooms. As a dentist I have always practiced under universal precautions so the steps we have always had the proper protocol in place but we are enhancing and taken further precautions above and beyond what the Center for Disease Control recommends. Your safety and our dedicated staff’s safety is and always will be our top priority.

It is understandable if some of you still have concerns or health issues that cause you concern. Feel free to ask any questions about our cleanliness and enhanced infection control protocols. Common sense guideline have always been in place such as if you are sick or with a fever do not come to the office. I cannot think of another step we can take to ensure your safety and the staff’s safety and to reduce the chance of transmission of COVID - 19. Your health and safety is of utmost concern and is in excellent hands. No one at our office would have it any other way. Just as with previous financial crises some of you may have had your business decimated or income negatively effected. As our valued guests please do not hesitate or be embarrassed to seek treatment or receive care. Please discuss that with us. We will take care of you! It is an honor to take care of everyone and look forward to seeing everyone back at the office. Stay healthy!

Our Mission Statement

“The philosophy for our dental practice is to educate and motivate our patients to retain their teeth and oral health for a lifetime. We provide ethical treatment options for our patients based on their individualized wants and needs. We also provide the highest quality of dental care through a constant commitment to continuing education and the use of the latest technology in a safe, clean, and comfortable environment.”

What Sets Us Apart from Other Dentists

Conservative Dentistry

While other dentists search for opportunities to make more money, we provide the information and motivation you need to maintain your natural teeth and oral health for the rest of your life. Every treatment is tailored to your individual wants and needs, and we never perform a treatment that we don't think will benefit your health.

Continuing Education

Our dentists are committed to providing the highest quality dental care available in Kenilworth, IL, and throughout the state. We regularly attend continuing education courses and training sessions to utilize the latest dental technology in a safe, comfortable setting. Dr. Carpenter alone has received over 500 hours of implant education.

Advanced Treatment Options

We are one of the only certified users of the Inman Aligner in the whole state. Additionally, we can perform most phases of dental implant treatment on-site, making it easy for our members to schedule all of their appointments in one location rather than traveling back and forth between specialists.

State-of-the-Art Technology

Visitors to our dental practice can enjoy some of the most advanced dental technology in the state. Dr. Carpenter has invested in a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanner, which gathers high-resolution images of your jaw, teeth, and surrounding structures to allow for better treatment planning.

"We have been coming to Dr. Carpenter for several years now after seeing dentists that lacked good patient relationships. Dr. Carpenter is patient with those who fear going to the dentist (that's me), explains what needs to be done and provides different options for treatment. Worth the trek from the city!"
