Patient Acknowledgement: COVID-19 Pandemic Dental Risk Please fill out the form below prior to your first appointment: Your Name: Please read the patient acknowledgement below, and initial all areas indicated: I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19 and that it is currently a pandemic. I understand that the novel coronavirus virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious. For this reason, I understand that the federal and provincial authorities have recommend that Ontarians stay home and avoid close contact with other people when at all possible. I understand the federal and provincial authorities have asked individuals to maintain social distancing of at least two (2) meters (six (6) feet) and I recognize it is not possible to maintain this distance while receiving dental treatment. I understand that oral surgery/dental procedures can create water and/or blood spray, which is one way that the novel coronavirus can spread. I understand that the ultra-fine nature of the spray can linger in the air for minutes to sometimes hours, which can transmit the novel coronavirus. I understand that due to the visits of other patients, the characteristics of the novel coronavirus and the characteristics of dental procedures, that I have an elevated risk of contacting the novel coronavirus simply by being in the dental office. I agree to complete a COVID-19 screening questionnaire as required by the Ministry of Health. I received COVID-19 test results in the past three (3) months, the last results I received were negative. (If applicable, approximate date of test:) I confirm that I am not waiting for the results of a test for COVID-19. I confirm that this is not currently a period during which public health authorities require I self-isolate. I verify the information I have provided on this form is truthful and complete. I knowingly and willingly consent to have emergency surgical/dental treatment completed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Signature: Press the button below to submit the completed consent form.
