Well Child Center’s Response to COVID-19

Well Child Center considers the health, safety, and well-being of you and your family – our WIC clients and young dental patients – to be our highest priority.

While we are open during regular business hours during this Coronavirus outbreak, we are also screening clients using a survey recommended by the Kane County Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to keep our clients and community safe.

For our Pediatric Dental Clinic patients, we are now open for appointments. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same — our commitment to your safety. Read more about the new Dental Policies here.

For our WIC families, the following exceptions for in-person appointments may be available during this Coronavirus outbreak:

1) You and your child(ren) may not be required to meet in-person temporarily to maintain services.
2) Nutrition Education will be completed via phone or internet. All WIC/Advocate Sherman classes are offered virtually through Zoom.
3) Food Instruments may be provided via curbside pick-up or in extreme cases via US certified mail.

Please call your family’s WIC office for additional information about these temporary exceptions and to ensure your family’s services continue without disruption.
