Welcome to Gentle Art of Dentistry in Decatur, IL
Important Information About Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We realize that this is a difficult time for everyone with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. We hope that you are all doing well. In order to prevent the spread of the disease in our office, we are currently only seeing emergency dental cases from now until March 31st, after which we are planning to re-open unless the recommendations from the CDC change.
We will still be there for our patients throughout this time. Dr. Cunningham will be available if emergency care is needed. If you're not sure what constitutes an emergency, then please call the office. If you have pain, swelling, or signs of an active dental infection, please call us first to possibly avoid a trip to a crowded emergency room. Other conditions that may need immediate treatment include a broken tooth or a permanent or temporary crown that has come off.
For a rough guideline of whether you should come in to the office, please answer the following questions. If you answer yes to any of the following, we would rather only see you if urgent dental care is needed:
- Do you have a fever?
- Do you have a cough?
- Are you experiencing muscle aches or body pains?
- Are you having difficulty breathing or having shortness of breath?
- Are you feeling more tired than usual?
- Have you been out of the country recently?
- Have you been on a cruise ship recently?
- Have you been visiting with anyone that has been out of the country or on a cruise ship?
We apologize for any inconvenience any of these schedule changes have caused, and we wish you the best in the coming weeks. Remember we are here for you and will get through this together! Stay well!

Achieving Good Oral Health
Caring for your teeth is an important factor in promoting good health. By focusing on what makes a mouth healthy, we will show you how to achieve the comfort and security of good oral health.
Our Emphasis Is On Prevention
Common sense tells us that preventing dental diseases is less costly and more rewarding than correcting problems once they occur. Good dental health is no accident. It is the result of good habits, proper nutrition, and regular professional care. Once you understand how dental diseases begin, then you will understand how to prevent them. That is why educating you as to how prevention can be accomplished is one of our primary goals.
