1. I knowingly and willingly consent to dental treatment at Little Urban Smiles by any designated associates or employees during the reopening phase of COVID-19.
2. I understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms yet are still highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has COVID-19 and who does not given the current limitations and availability in COVID-19 viral testing.
3.

5. Contact with infected: I confirm that I have not knowingly been in close contact (defined as 6 feet or less for a duration of fifteen minutes or more) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or with anyone that has had the above stated symptoms in paragraph 4 (#4) in the last 14 days.
6. Public travel: I confirm that I have not traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days. I confirm that I have not traveled domestically by commercial airline, bus, or train within the last 14 days.
7. If I receive an appointment time, and by or on the day of my appointment the answer to any of these above questions change or I experience any of the above mentioned symptoms, I will immediately alert office staff to reschedule an appointment at a suitable time.
I have been given the opportunity to ask any questions regarding the risks of contracting COVID-19 from the dental office and dental procedures. I reaffirm that I am not a carrier of COVID-19 nor infected with COVID-19 to the best of my knowledge. I voluntarily assume any and all medical/dental risks, including the substantial and significant risk of serious harm, if any, which may be associated with any phase of my treatment as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. I acknowledge that the nature and purpose of the dental procedures recommended under the current circumstances and restrictions have been explained to me and that I have been given the opportunity to ask questions.
