Safer orthodontic care comes standard with us
If you’re concerned about COVID-19 and going to an orthodontist, you’ll be pleased to know that your safety is our top priority. In fact, long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Kristo Orthodontics established a standard of safety that few other orthodontists can match.
All along, we’ve maintained strict infection and cross-contamination prevention standards, even exceeding the recommended guidelines for orthodontic safety by the American Dental Association (ADA), the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO), the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). So rest assured, Kristo Orthodontics will continue to take all necessary precautions to protect the safety and well-being of every patient we treat.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve pushed our usual advanced orthodontic safeguards even further, providing the orthodontic care you need in the safest possible environment. To ensure orthodontic safety, we’re following the CDC recommendations for social distancing. In keeping with their guidelines, we’ve implemented additional orthodontic safeguards in every Kristo clinic.
