Office Updates Relating to COVID-19

To the patients of Porter Orthodontics:

Your health and well-being is our top priority. We wanted to reach out personally regarding the current situation with the novel coronavirus, known as COVID-19. Each day brings new developments and our hearts go out to all affected. Please know that we are monitoring the situation closely.

I appreciate your understanding and patience during this trying time. We will be providing regular updates via email. Our continued prayers for you and your family throughout this time.

At Porter Orthodontics, we are doing our part to keep safety a priority for everyone. You have placed your trust in us to oversee the oral health of you or your family member, and we take that job seriously. We want you to know we are doing our best to protect everyone from continuing viral spread of COVID-19.

What We Are Doing to Keep You Safe

  • Maintaining our current OSHA directives related to the dental industry standards for sterilization of dental instruments and cleaning and sanitizing hard surfaces used during appointments.
  • Eliminating handshakes and any type of bodily contact that is not specifically related to your appointment.
  • Offering virtual retainer checkups where applicable or reschedule to a later date.
  • Asking patients to send photos of emergencies first, via email or text, so we can troubleshoot issues to determine if an appointment in the office is of immediate urgency.

The team at Porter Orthodontics appreciates your trust and will continue to work every day to provide the best and safest orthodontic care possible.

Our continued prayers go out to you and your family through this trying time!
