Covid-19 Guidelines

Welcome Back!

While things have changed, one thing at Horton & Vranas, DDS has remained the same: Our Constant Commitment to Your Safety and the Safety of Our Team.

As you have surely seen during your visits to our office, infection control has always been a top priority for our office. Our strict processes have consistently made the care you receive at Horton & Vranas, DDS both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We continue to closely monitor the recommendations of these agencies so that we are up-to-date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued.

When it is time for your next appointment, you will see some changes to help protect our patients and our team. For example:

  • Masks are optional, if you don't have one, please inform us and one will be provided.
  • You will be asked to wash your hands and complete a pre-procedural rinse once in the treatment room.
  • You are encouraged to bring your own iPad, Earbuds and reading materials.
  • We will do our best to reduce waiting times for you.

We look forward to seeing you and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at 630-377-1010 or request an appointment here.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends in the safest way possible.
