, knowingly and willingly consent to have dental treatments including dental hygiene treatments completed during the COVID-19 pandemic. I understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has it and who does not given the current limits in virus testing. Dental procedures create water spray which is how disease is spread. The ultra-fine nature of the spray can linger in the air for minutes to sometimes hours, which can transmit the COVID-19 virus. We do use the Extraoral Suction unit with triple layer of HEPA medical grade filters and UV light to sterilize the air during treatment to significantly minimize aerosols up to 95%. However, we cannot eliminate 100% of expressed aerosols.
