To our patients,

In an effort to support national efforts to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, our practice is taking the following steps to help assure your health and well-being and that of our community.

- We are following directives from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a way to limit patient and staff exposure to this virus.
- Your health, and the health of our dedicated staff , matters to us, so going forward we will suspend all non-emergency care for three weeks.
-Patients will be seen only for urgent and emergency dental needs.

We will contact you soon to reschedule routine dental hygiene appointments. If you are already scheduled for an urgent issue, we will contact you the day before your appointment to discuss your health status, health screening protocols and confirm whether the appointment should be kept.

The safety and well-being of our patients continues to be our primary concern. We will continue to monitor the status of COVID-19 nationally and within our community and keep you up-to-date regarding our plans to reopen for business as usual.
I urge you to contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We can be reached by phone at 618-654-4551 or by email [email protected] and will respond as soon as we can.

What Our Patients Say

I've gone to Cedar Creek Dental my entire life, and have had everything from normal check-ups to orthodontics in this office. Dr. Von Hoven, as well as the entire staff, are incredibly friendly, extremely professional, and truly caring. I've moved out of Highland, but still continue to come here, because I wouldn't trust anyone else with my teeth after the superb treatment I've received here!

I've been to many dentists as both an observer and a patient, and this was hands down the best experience I've had on both accounts! Dr. von Hoven is  focused on ensuring his patients are comfortable throughout the entire procedure. He and his awesome team of staff took the time to answer all of my questions, and made it a much more relaxing dental visit than I've ever had in the past! (The beautiful outdoor view from the huge windows in each room doesn't hurt either.)

Leah N.
Highland, IL really all I can say! I drive about 30 minutes to see Dr. von Hoven and it's more than worth it. From the front desk staff and assistants to Dr von Hoven. I have always been very satisfied with the work I have had done, and Dr. von Hoven gives you all the time you need to ask questions and make you feel very comfortable. Would give more than 5 stars if I could!
