Covid-19 Protocols 

 

 

 

We’re working hard to keep you safe during your visit. Here are some of the steps we're taking to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

Please note - all patients and parents are required to wear a mask!

Operatory Barriers

 

 

 

Our treatment area has been upgraded with the addition of state-of-the-art barriers specifically designed to provide a safe environment during your appointment as recommended by the CDC and the American Association of Orthodontists.

Waiting Area

 

 

 

We’ve removed non-essential items from our waiting area and spaced out our seating to ensure six-foot distances. In addition, we sanitize all surfaces, handles, and contact areas at the reception desk throughout the day.

Antiviral Fogging

 

 

 

In addition to our standard disinfection protocols, we utilize a handheld fogging machine each day in our treatment areas to provide added protection for our patients. This CDC-recommended procedure is an added step we take to make our office safer.

Patient Precautions

 

 

 

We screen each and every patient that visits our office with a pre-appointment questionnaire and in-office temperature scan. Parents and siblings are asked to stay in the car during appointments whenever possible to limit contact within the waiting area.

Vacuum Filtration

 

 

 

For all aerosol-producing procedures (like taking braces off!), we use a mobile vacuum filtration system designed to remove particulates from the air during the appointment.
