Dental Care During the Pandemic

Dr Scott Malik remains available for routine and urgent dental care during the pandemic health crisis. We encourage our patients not to neglect their teeth–don’t let small issues escalate. Schedule an appointment today!

We follow the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) guidelines on dental care as well as general guidance, including for the fully vaccinated. The federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) also has guidelines for dental settings and lots of additional information. The Cook County Department of Public Health and the Village of Glenview offer pandemic resources as well. Recommendations and requirements change as our understanding of the situation evolves, so check these resources frequently for updates.

We are taking precautions in our office for the safety of our patients and staff, including:

  • Social distancing in the waiting room: patients should call our office upon arriving in the parking lot, and then wait outside until we approve entry. We will not bring in a patient until the room is clear of other patients and everyone else
  • Face masks: staff and patients wear masks at all times in our office, until Dr Malik directs otherwise
  • Air purifiers in the operatories
  • Patients and staff with a fever or other symptoms/suspicion of illness must stay home, and we will reschedule these appointments

Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We want to continue seeing your smile!
