COVID-19 Coronavirus UPDATE

Dear patients, families, and friends:

We are all grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our compassion goes out to anyone affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

At THE PERIODONTAL GROUP, Dr. Gene Ranieri and Dr. Basel Hajjar, believe it’s our role and responsibility during times like this to prioritize two things:

1.       The safety of our patients, families, and staff

2.       Support local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus.

With that view in mind, we will continue make decisions informed by the latest science-based information and guided by our compassion and concern for all people.

I wanted to personally reach out to you and provide you with an update on the actions that we are taking to help prevent the spread of viruses and support the safety of everyone concerned.

Therefore, for the safety of our community, patients, and team, we have cancelled allot of our patients’ previously scheduled appointments. We have been instructed that all dental practices must discontinue elective procedures starting 3/24/20. Therefore, the office is closed at this time.  As we move deeper into this crisis, the uncertainty of the date that we will be able to return to normal operations only increases. To be respectful and efficient with your time and ours, we have decided to suspend the rescheduling of cancelled appointments until we have more clarity on our reopening date. Our patient’s well-being continues to be our top priority for true emergency care. If you are experiencing a dental emergency and need doctor paged, call the answering service number at 708-570-1801. 

Our ultimate goal is to provide patients with the best care in the safest environment. Thank you for choosing our practice.  We will openly share information as we move forward.

We are grateful for the opportunity to serve you and your families and look forward to your next visit with us.

Dr. Gene Ranieri and Dr. Basel Hajjar
