Welcome to Chatham Dental Center!
Your first visit to our office establishes a vital foundation for our relationship with you. During the first visit, we make sure to obtain important background information, like your medical history, and give you time to get to know your doctor. To understand what to expect for your first visit to our practice, please read through this page. You'll find all the practical information you need, such as a map and directions to our office, practice hours, payment policies and more. There's also background information about our committed staff and our first visit procedures. You can even save some time at your first visit by printing out and completing the patient forms in advance.
To schedule your appointment or inquire about any information please give us a call at 217-483-3545.
Our mission is simple. We strive to improve the lives of everyone we meet, not just the ones that we treat. We will do so with kindness, compassion, education, excellent dental care and philanthropy throughout our community.
If you would like to fill out your forms in office, please arrive 15 minutes before your appointment time.
If you would prefer to fill the forms out before hand, please download them below:
No Insurance? No Problem!
After many years of seeing patients turn away from proper dental care due to not having insurance Dr. Lonergan implemented a Chatham Dental Center Membership Program. Please check out our membership program page for details.
State of Illinois Patients:
Please rest assured that Chatham Dental Center is still accepting patients with Delta Dental insurance through the State of Illinois.
If you have any questions please feel free to call our office!
What To Expect
A week before your appointment you will be sent a reminder via text or email. When you arrive at your appointment you will be greeted by our front staff. If you have not filled out your new patient paperwork before your appointment, you will be handed your packet to fill out before your hygienist takes you back.
When you are ready your hygienist will take you back and go over any necessary information. During this first appointment you will have your cleaning, x-rays taken, an exam with Dr. Lonergan, gum scoring, and if needed, a treatment plan will be developed for you.
