At Dr. Tina Siu's orthodontic office, your health and the health of our staff are of the utmost importance. To ensure safety for all, we do follow usual universal precautions (hand hygiene, masks, gloves, face shields for all patients). We are taking the temperature of all patients and parents who come in with a contactless thermometer. Additionally, every half hour to an hour we wipe down the waiting room and common spaces with disinfectant.
For the protection of all our patients and staff we are requesting the following:
If you are sick, we recommend you cancel and reschedule your orthodontic appointment. In particular, please reschedule your appointment if you have:
- a cold or the flu
- severe headaches, body or muscle aches
- mild chest pain or difficulty breathing
- vomiting or diarrhea
- active tuberculosis (TB)
- mumps, measles, chickenpox
- and other contagious disease
Please notify our staff before your appointment if you or someone you are in close contact with have recently traveled to one of the countries with large outbreaks of COVID-19 (ex. China, Italy, Iran, South Korea) or if you have been exposed to someone else who was diagnosed with COVID-19 or who was quarantined as a precaution.
If you are healthy, there’s no need to cancel your regularly scheduled Orthodontic appointment.
