Coronavirus Update in Cedar Rapids
Dear Elite Orthodontic Families,
With the rapidly changing challenges brought about by the threat of COVID-19 we are taking steps to ensure that our patients and team are protected. We would like to keep you informed about the measures we are taking and our schedule, we ask that you read the following:
Patients with Symptoms:
In the event that an orthodontic patient or family member has symptoms related to COVID-19 or influenza (fever, persistent cough, shortness of breath) we ask that you not come to the office and reschedule to an appropriate time (minimum 2 weeks later).
Extra Family Members at Appointments:
As a temporary measure, we ask that you limit to one extra person accompanying the patient inside the clinic. We ask that extra family members wait outside of the office. We understand that some parents may need to wait in the car with other children. We can discuss your child’s appointment over the phone as necessary.
When you arrive to your appointment, please check in at the front desk.
Measures we are taking:
We will adhere to any state or local recommendations and will follow CDC and ADA guidelines and updates as they are available.
Masks are no longer required, but are recommended.
In closing, the safe care of our patients and staff is of the utmost importance. All of us are hopeful the COVID-19 event will pass soon. Please keep a lookout for future updates on Facebook and please call or email the office at any time if questions.
Drs. Brady Novak and Karl Swenson
