Mask Required

Forest Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry
Currently Must Require Masks.

At this time, Forest Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry must require you to wear masks.

Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker announced that the state’s mask mandate is changing following new guidance for fully vaccinated people from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although Pritzker updated the executive order that will remove the mask requirement for fully vaccinated residents in most settings, these do not include healthcare settings.

Regardless of a person’s vaccination status, Illinois residents shall be required to wear a face-covering consistent with CDC guidance, including on public transportation, in congregate facilities, and in healthcare settings-including dental offices.
