For purposes of scheduling orthodontic patient appointments at the offices of

Definition:

  • Known exposure: Family member or close contact with any person who has either shown symptoms or suspected symptoms or tested positive for COVID 19.
    • Symptoms: Symptoms: Fever (subjective or measured),  Shortness of breath,  Severe shortness of breath (unable to speak full sentence), Cough, Coughing up blood (hemoptysis),  Signs of low blood pressure (cold, pale, clammy skin, light-headed),  Runny or stuffy nose,  Sore throat,  Muscle, body aches, or headaches,  Fatigue or malaise,  Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, new loss of taste or smell
    • Suspected symptoms: person showed symptoms but was not tested
    • Positive test results only: no symptoms but tested positive for COVID19

Our policy has been determined based upon data compiled from all the major health organizations and as a private practice have determined that the below protocol is sufficient for our purposes.

An orthodontic appointment will be scheduled for at least 14 days after a known exposure. If the patient remains symptom free and has self-quarantined for the recommended 14 day period, the appointment will be maintained. If at any time within the allotted 14 day period the patient begins displaying symptoms, please call our office to reschedule the appointment for 14 days after the patients symptoms subside.

Reporting a known exposure can potentially save lives. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

 

Sincerely,
Dr. Jon A. Moles
