Our office follows all requirements for Infection Control and Prevention, including all enhanced directives issued by the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ontario Ministry of Health. Our clinic and all treatment areas are sterilized frequently, including after each dental procedure and patient visit. We take all the necessary precautions to prevent transmission of the COVID-19 virus along with any and all other infection causing viruses or bacteria.
For each paragraph below please check to indicate that you have read and understand it
I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19 and that it is currently a pandemic. I understand the novel coronavirus virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious. For this reason, I understand that the federal and provincial authorities have recommended that Ontarians stay home and avoid close contact with other people when at all possible.
I understand the federal and provincial governments have asked individuals to maintain physical distancing of at least two (2) metres (six (6) feet) and I recognize it is not possible to maintain this distance while receiving dental treatment.
I understand that dental procedures can cause water and/or blood spray, which is one important way that the novel coronavirus can spread. The ultra-fine nature of the spray can linger in the air for minutes to sometimes hours, which can transmit the novel coronavirus.
I understand that due to the visits of other patients, the characteristics of the novel coronavirus, and the characteristics of dental procedures, that I have, or the patient has, an elevated risk of contracting the novel coronavirus simply by being in a dental office.
If I, or the patient, received COVID-19 test results in the past three (3) months, the last results I, or the patient, received were:
I confirm that I am not waiting for the results of a test for COVID-19
I confirm that this is not currently a period during which public health authorities required I, or the patient, self-isolate(s) for 14 days.
Acknowledgement and Consent:

I knowingly and willingly consent to have Orthodontics on Danforth provide orthodontic treatment for myself or for my child, named above, despite the elevated risks associated with treatment during this time of COVID-19 pandemic.
