Is it Safe to go Back to the Orthodontist Now That They Have Reopened?

Now that King Orthodontics has reopened, you may have questions about the precautions your Orthodontist is taking to keep you safe and healthy during your visit. While our appointment process may seem different, we have remained on the front lines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. From disinfecting treatment and waiting rooms to implementing strict use of personal protective equipment (PPE), our staff and patients’ safety and health is our primary concern. 

Peace of Mind for Your Next Appointment

Safety Equipment in OrthodonticsBefore the COVID-19 pandemic, we followed strict universal precautions for your health and safety and continue to do so. These include:

  • Masks
  • Gloves
  • Glasses
  • Sterile devices and instruments
  • Clean and disinfected surfaces

Areas that are often touched, such as door handles, deck, chairs, and bathrooms, are frequently cleaned and disinfected. We have also limited our waiting area’s capacity and have removed difficult to clean objects such as magazines from the waiting area to keep it clean. 

What to Do When You Arrive for Your Appointment:

When you arrive at your appointment, please check-in at the front desk. If you feel more comfortable, you are welcome to wait in your vehicle, and our team will give you a call when we are ready to see you. All patients and guardians will be screened for symptoms, and we ask that if you are experiencing symptoms or feel ill to please remain home. Face coverings are required for your appointment, and only one guardian per minor patient will be permitted.

Excellence In Service

I have 4 children who are patients of King Orthodontics and we always look forward to our visits. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff is kind, & courteous. To top it off, we have never had to wait more than 10 minutes or so! Dr. King... and Dr. Bryan, are kind and knowledgeable and easily accessible too. I can’t say enough about this practice!

I just wanted to take a minute to write and let you know what a wonderful addition Dr. DeMiria is to your office. I was in twice this week and saw Dr. DeMiria on Monday for the first time. She is absolutely wonderful - just so nice and she really seems to be invested in her patients. The entire staff at Wexford office is wonderful and Dr. DeMiria is just icing on the cake.

I absolutely love King Orthodontics!! The staff are so friendly and actually care about you and your teeth. Almost everyone who works there knows you by name which is very uncommon for a place with so many patients. It is so worth the hour drive it takes me to get there. I would highly recommend King Orthodontics to anyone!!!!!
