Welcome to Sheppard Periodontics, S.C.
Periodontics in Hoffman Estates, IL
August 6, 2019
It is with mixed emotions that I am announcing that I will be closing my practice, effective September 15, 2019. It has been a great pleasure providing for your periodontal health care needs over the last 16 years. It is not easy for me to make this new transition, but it is in the best interest of my family. There are so many of you that I care for not only from a clinical standpoint but from a personal standpoint as well and I will always be grateful.
Effective immediately, I am referring patients to Dr. Lee Patrone. Lee is a periodontist that I have known and trust completely. Lee was trained at the same University that I was (University of Iowa) and can offer the same services that I do along with many more as he also specializes in anesthesia and more advanced surgical techniques. His office is also available to provide maintenance cleanings much like you have been accustomed to at my office. Lee has several locations available, but Arlington Heights is considered his main office.
In the immediate timeframe, I am going to ask you to schedule your upcoming maintenance visits (cleanings) at your dentist’s office and do not let my departure interrupt the important schedule that you have been on.
Your dental records are confidential, and a copy can be transferred to Dr. Patrone (or another doctor) or released to you or another person you designate only through your permission. If you wish to immediately have records transferred, please sign the enclosed authorization form and return it to my office. Until then, your records will remain protected.
You will still be able to reach the office at 847-885-1664. Lauren can assist you with any questions and help you in any way. Additionally, my answering service will still be accepting phone calls.
I have greatly valued our relationship and thank you for your loyalty and friendship over the years. Best wishes for your future health.

“Dr. Sheppard is a great Periodontist. I’ve seen many dentists, periodontists and oral surgeons for various issues in my mouth, and I can honestly say she is extremely good at what she does. Not only did she do a deep root cleaning but she was able to get me two appointments before my insurance ran out. Her estimate of what I would have to pay after my insurance was within 10%. Finally, she has the most wonderful personality. She won’t take advantage and try to charge for something not needed. Like I said, I’ve seen many dentists, and I’m staying with this one for all my periodontal work in the future.”Deer F.
