Posted on May 7, 2020
We are excited to announce that our Kansas City offices are back open for regularly scheduled orthodontic appointments! You’ll notice upon entering our office that we have made many changes in order to keep patients and team members safe and healthy throughout the day.
One new addition to our practice is the COVID-19 Dental Treatment Consent Formthat every patient will sign when entering one of our locations. (see consent form below).

Even after following protocols set by the American Dental Association and our state’s dental association, it is still possible to contract COVID-19 while at a dental office. We are following all guidelines to minimize the risk of transmission.
