Covid-19 Update

We are very happy to advise that we are once again able to provide Full Orthodontic services for our patients.  We have attempted to contact all our patients/or parents to reschedule previously cancelled appointments.  If you are unsure about your appointment-please call us directly.

During the COVID 19 crisis we have implemented the following new protocols for the safety of both patients and staff:

-All patients and their parents MUST wear their own MASKS upon entering our office.
-A COVID consent form will need to be signed by parents or patients over the age of 18, and a patient temperature will also be taken.
-Lastly, we request that patients should brush & rinse with mouthwash PRIOR to arriving for their appointments, as our brushing station is currently not available.

Stay Safe
