Dear i-Orthodontics Family,
The health and safety of our patients, team, and community have always been and continue to be our #1 priority. We continue to closely monitor all of the most current recommendations of how to keep our patients safe. As with the transmission of any communicable disease like a cold or the flu, you may be exposed to COVID-19, also known as “Coronavirus,” at any time and in any place. Be assured that we have always followed Colorado regulations and recommended universal personal protection and disinfection protocols to limit transmission of all diseases in our office and continue to do so. These measures include, but are not limited to:
Every aspect of our practice has been examined to ensure that there is no patient-to-staff or staff-to-staff interaction that is considered “close contact” based on proximity, duration, and layers of personal protective equipment.
Despite our careful attention to sterilization, disinfection, and use of personal barriers, we acknowledge that there is risk of exposure – as in any other public place.
Despite the low risk of transmission in our office, we are committed to notifying patients by phone or email if they were in the office at the same time as a COVID-positive person. We will also ensure that we always meet or exceed guidelines from public health authorities that reduce the risk of spread of infections in our office.
It is expected that you do not come to the office if you have any Coronavirus symptoms or if you were in close contact with someone who is infected or in self-isolation due to a suspected coronavirus infection. In addition, please let us know if you find out that you are COVID-positive after your visit and may have been in the office during the incubation stage of the coronavirus.
Before your appointment:
At the time of your in-office appointment:
We thank you all for your support during this time. Our practice would not exist without our amazing patients, and we are so grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through these unprecedented times. We maintain our commitment to you to deliver the highest quality of orthodontic care in a friendly and welcoming environment. We look forward to seeing you all again soon, even if you don’t recognize us under all of our masks and gowns!
Dr. I, Dr. Danielle, and the entire i-Orthodontics Team
