Dear Patient: You have come to our office today for a routine dental evaluation and/or treatment that will be done during the COVID-19 pandemic. Please be advised of the following:
While our office complies with State Health Department and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention infection control guidelines to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we cannot make any guarantees.
Our staff are symptom-free and, to the best of their knowledge, have not been exposed to the virus. However, since we are a place of public accommodation, other persons (including other patients) could be infected, with or without their knowledge.
In order to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, we have asked you a number of “screening” questions below. For the safety of our staff, other patients, and yourself, please be truthful and candid in your answers.
This patient disclosure form seeks information from you that we must consider before making treatment decisions in the circumstance of the COVID‐19 virus.
A weak or compromised immune system (including, but not limited to, conditions like diabetes, asthma, COPD, cancer treatment, radiation, chemotherapy, and any prior or current disease or medical condition), can put you at greater risk
for contracting COVID‐19. Please disclose to us any condition that compromises your immune system and understand that we may ask you to consider rescheduling treatment after discussing any such conditions with us.
It is also important that you disclose to this office any indication of having been exposed to COVID‐19, or whether you have experienced any signs or symptoms associated with the COVID‐19 virus.
