Office Updates Relating to COVID-19

Please review these guidelines for all future orthodontic appointment attendance.

We will be using the current Risk Dial from the City of Lincoln’s COVID-19 Response website as the metric for designating orthodontic appointment attendance.

You must submit this Communicable Disease Consent Form prior to your next appointment (only needs to be completed once per family)
