COVID-19 Pandemic Dental Treatment Consent Form

To ensure the health and safety of both our patients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, all patients are required to review and submit a consent form prior to coming in for their next dental appointment.

This form is being reviewed and submitted by:

CMOH Order 05-2020 legally obligates any person who has the following cough, fever, shortness of breath, runny nose, or sore throat (that is not related to a pre-existing illness or health condition) to be in isolation (quarantine) for 10 days from the start of symptoms, or until symptoms resolve, whichever takes longer. If they are exhibiting any of these symptoms, it is suggested they complete the COVID-19 Self-Assessment online tool to determine if they should be tested.

Children

Children who still have some baby teeth may require orthodontic treatment for the correction of specific problems. These problems may include the following:

  • Correction of a habit such as thumb sucking, which can move teeth and affect the bite
  • Early treatment to address severe developing crowding
  • The correction of tooth interferences like cross-bites, which may damage permanent teeth and affect bite development
  • The correction of growth-related problems in the upper or lower jaw

Teenagers

Most commonly, teenagers will wear braces to correct many types of problems. Often people will assume that the orthodontist simply straightens the teeth to improve the appearance of the patient’s smile. This is only part of the story. A corrected bite is also important to allow proper chewing, to minimize abnormal tooth wear, to ensure balanced jaw and muscle function, and to ensure the greatest ease when brushing and flossing the teeth.

Adults 

Adults can also benefit from the many advantages of orthodontic treatment. Even if some tooth wear or damage has occurred, adjusting the position and shape of teeth can restore their appearance and function. Orthodontic treatment can also make it easier to replace missing teeth with implants after the braces are gone.
