Henick Orthodontics Family,
As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to evolve and change quickly, our chief concern, as always, is the health and well-being of our patients and team members. We wish to reassure you that we are closely monitoring the situation and taking the most current medical updates into account regarding our practice and patient care. Here are some of the changes we have instituted and we will continue to adapt as we receive more information on COVID-19:
As mandated by the state, we are advised to reschedule all elective procedures, in an effort to reduce unnecessary risk of exposure to corona virus. We are still open and seeing patients for emergency appointments and are now offering virtual consultations.
In order to safely treat our patients, we continue to meet or exceed CDC and OSHA guidelines for sterilization and infection control throughout our offices; and additional screening has been ongoing to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other seasonal illnesses:
We are asking that if you or someone you know is exhibiting any cold/flu-like symptoms (sore throat, cough, fever), have traveled within the last 2 weeks, or have come in contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19, please reschedule.
We also ask that patients not bring additional members to the office during this time. If you are a minor, please bring only one responsible adult with you.
We do anticipate the outbreak will result in more modifications to our current situation, but we have contingency plans in place that should enable us to provide you with uninterrupted service, for those in need of urgent or emergency care.
For additional information and ongoing updates on COVID-19, please refer to the local health department, state health department and the CDC’s Corona virus Disease 2019 site.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact one of our offices and speak with a team member. As always, we appreciate your patience and trusting us as your orthodontic provider through this time of uncertainty. We wish you and your loved ones well and know that we will overcome this, together, and emerge stronger than ever before.
