    Consent and Risk Acceptance

    I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19. I understand the novel coronavirus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be contagious.
    I understand that dental procedures create water spray which is one way that the novel coronavirus can spread. 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 frequency of visits of other dental patients, the characteristics of the novel coronavirus, and the characteristics of dental procedures, that I have an elevated risk of contracting the novel coronavirus simply by being in a dental office.
    I understand that Cypress Dental has taken all reasonable steps to decrease and minimize my risk of exposure to the COVID-19 virus. In spite of these steps taken, I understands that there is no way to fully eliminate the risk of viral transmission. I further understand that the nature of dental treatment means that physical distancing is not possible when being treated.
    I understand that staying home and/or utilizing Telehealth (virtual or phone consultations) is still the safest option for reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
