FamilyA message from Dr Lawson and the staff of College Avenue Dental to our patients and friends, 

 We just wanted to reach out to you in this time of turmoil to help you to understand what is going on here. We hope this finds you and your loved ones well. As most of you probably know, the office has been closed for all routine dental care with only emergencies being seen. This is in cooperating with the guidelines of the CDC and The American Dental Association, and now the mandate from Governor Pritzker for preventing the spread of COVID-19.  We regret that this disruption in your dental care has occurred but trust that you understand the necessity of this action. We have no real idea when we will be able to begin serving your needs again. We are currently using this time to study and understand the changes that will be needed, at least temporarily, to protect your health and that of our staff.   While we have been trying to call and reschedule all patients with existing appointments, we are going to discontinue this process because we are now rescheduling some appointments for a second time. At this time we are asking those with appointments scheduled through May 15,2020 to consider those appointments cancelled. We will be contacting you, as soon as our status becomes clearer, to reschedule. Please remember that we will be addressing emergencies until this time so if you find yourself in an emergency situation please don’t hesitate to call. We will be posting periodic updates to here and to our Facebook page if you would like to keep informed of our status. Until then please stay safe and healthy. The staff of College Avenue Dental April 17,2020
