Onward and Upward!

Dear Patients,

A wonderful opportunity has come my way and I am excited to announce that on March 7th I am joining forces with Dr. Richard Diverde, a long-time friend, in his practice at 30 N. Michigan Avenue – Suite 1405 in Chicago.

This move will give me more autonomy, as I will be managing my own business again. That means my patients and I will set treatment procedures together. That kind of freedom will allow me to provide affordable services based on you and not on a company goal.

I want to thank Dr. Lena Casimir and all of the folks at Classic Smiles for giving me a place to restart my practice in 2019. Now it is time to venture out of the nest again and manage my own business.

Some of you are probably saying, “What? You’re moving again?” Trust me, this is for the best. The first move was forced upon me. This move is one I take freely and cheerfully. And this time, I will be able to contact my patients with the news which is something I was not allowed to do before due to contract limitations with the dental corporation that bought my old practice. If you are currently a patient of mine, you will be contacted directly to give you the news. This will allow you to ask me any questions regarding your care and this change in dental office.

This new practice has many of the things that you have been asking for:

  • Easy entry into the building

  • Back in the central Loop across from the Bean

  • Some of my old staff is joining me

As before, I am still not dead or retiring. Would a dead man let you know these things? Probably not.

I want to thank each of you for your loyalty to me as your dentist. You all mean the world to me. I’m thrilled to be part of your lives and pledge myself to keeping you healthy.

Visit this website soon for more information. If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a note at doctordeaver@gmail.com. This is going to be great for all of us.

Warm regards,

Dr. Bob Deaver

Facts You Should Know

All of these changes started when I sold my first practice to a dental corporation that removed me and started spreading rumors about me that were not true. I thought you'd enjoy reading about what's really going on:

FACT 1 – I Have NOT retired, secretly or otherwise
I am still a practicing dentist. I have just moved to a more comfortable setting where I am assured to have the time to provide you with the best dental care and personal service possible. My long time patients know me for my high quality work and deep concern for your health. This new arrangement allows me the time to fully care for my patients.

 

FACT 2 – I was NEVER secretly working at another office
I established my office in 1984 and worked there until just recently. I only worked in that office, unless I was working in a volunteer position with Dental Lifeline Network, Doctors Without Borders, or Mission of Mercy; charity work of which I am extremely proud.

FACT 3 – I, my wife and my family members are all still alive and well
We’ve heard a lot of strange stuff over the last few months, such as:
•    I have a debilitating illness (arthritis, Alzheimer’s, HIV,

     Athletes Foot). Nope, not true. I’m fine.
•    My mother passed away and/or I have left suddenly to

     care for her. Again, no. She’s fine and still quite spry.
•    I just left one day and did not return or communicate my

     absence to anyone. No, I never left, just moved to another

     office and am still quite talkative.
You have to wonder how these rumors get started, but rest assured, nothing like the above is remotely true.

 

FACT 4 – I am NOT working full time as a teacher

I am currently teaching part-time at the University of Illinois – Chicago Campus dental school and I have been for many years, even before I changed practices. This in no way hinders my time and ability to be your personal dentist. I learned how to walk and chew gum years ago.

Teaching allows me to stay up to on techniques, products compliance and more. Plus I am now a certified dental examiner helping new dentists enter practice.

 

FACT 5 – If you get any calls or mail from my previous practice, they are NOT coming from me

For some, it’s hard to say “goodbye.” Fortunately, I don’t have to. It’s not goodbye, it’s “See you in a new location!” Our new location is growing and we welcome old and new friends and their families. We would like to thank our patients who have found us and appreciate your continuing trust and support.

 

FACT 6 – I have NOT moved my practice out of the city of Chicago

My new practices is still in the heart of the city. The address, along with a map, are shown below. And we have a wonderful view of the Bean! Nice, right?

 

Have you heard anything different? If you have any questions about me and our new practice, just call and we’ll give you the truth.

Best regards,

Doctor Robert Deaver

Coronavirus / covid-19 notice

To my dental family,

 

Diverde Dental Studio is following the guidelines and recommendations by the Chicago Dental Society, Illinois State Dental Society, and the CDC. This will always be the case. As the guidelines change as the pandemic continues, we will change with the science. COVID-19 may be waning, but our commitment to avoiding infections will not.

 

The University of Illinois Dental School where I am on faculty follows the most stringent safety guidelines. We follow suit with enhanced sterilization and protocol that includes new health history, strict wipe down measures, pre-rinsing, full masks and glove technique, and full sterilization procedures. I get updates daily from the Chicago Dental Society and will make any recommended adjustments as they suggest.

 

You may email me with any concerns or if you wish to arrange a phone call with me, please contact me first through my private email, doctordeaver@gmail.com.

Blessings to all of you. I take my responsibility to all of you very seriously and am very fortunate to have such wonderful people in my life.

 

Thank you,

 

Bob Deaver
