A Special Message to our Patients

URGENT MESSAGE TO OUR PATIENTS:

Dear Gupta Orthodontics Family,

We are excited to announce that we will start seeing patients again on 5/11/2020!  We have made several modifications to our protocols and facility to ensure our office is a safe environment for our patients.  Below, are a list of important changes you need to be aware of prior to coming in for your appointment:

  • In an effort to minimize the number of people in the office our waiting room is closed and we are requesting only the patient to enter the office and parents/siblings wait in the car. You may call our office and we can have a team member let you know via text or phone call when your child's appointment is completed. If the patient has a new patient consultation exam or is starting treatment that day, then one adult may accompany the patient.
  • Patients are asked to wear a mask to the office and keep the mask on at all times except when having their orthodontic treatment done.
  • We ask that you come into the office for your appointment as close to your scheduled time as possible.  If you arrive early, please call the office and see if we are ready to see you.  If we are not ready for you, we will ask you to wait in your car until your appointment time.  If you arrive late to your appointment we may not be able to see you.
  • Patients need to brush their teeth before arriving at the office. The brushing station is closed for now.
  • A wellness Screening will be performed upon entry that will consist of taking the patient’s temperature and answering the following screening questions. If the patient's temperature is above 99.5° F or they answer yes to any of the screening questions below we will need to reschedule his/her appointment:
    • Do you have any of the following:
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath/Difficulty breathing
      • Chills
      • Muscle Pain
      • Headache
      • Sore throat or tightness in chest
      • Loss of smell
      • Contact with a person who has COVID-19
If the patient has any of the above please call our office and we will be happy to reschedule their appointment.
 
Our number one priority is the safety of our patients and the community.  We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding through this process.
 
Sincerely,
 
Dr. Deepak Gupta & the team at Gupta Orthodontics
