With community transmission of communicable diseases, you could be exposed anywhere to infectious diseases, including, but not limited to COVID-19 (also called Coronavirus). Our orthodontic office is following the State and Federal regulations and recommended universal protection and disinfection protocols to limit the transmission of communicable diseases. However, it is possible these precautions will not always be successful in blocking the transmission of these diseases. Social distancing nationwide has reduced the transmission of COVID-19, however, it is not possible to provide orthodontic treatment with social distancing between the patient, orthodontist, orthodontic staff and sometimes other patients.

By presenting yourself and your child for orthodontic treatment, you assume the risk that you or your child may inadvertently be exposed to a communicable disease.

If you have been exposed to a communicable disease prior to your orthodontic appointment, you may spread the disease tot he orthodontist, orthodontic staff and to other patients/parents int he practice. Therefore, prior to each appointment, we will perform a temperature screening upon entering the office. If a temperature higher than 100.4 is detected, we will reschedule your appointment. If you have been diagnosed with a communicable disease and have an appointment with us, we ask that you call and reschedule your appointment.
