I understand the novel coronavirus causes the disease known as COVID-19. I understand the novel coronavirus virus 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 and/or blood spray which is one way that the novel coronavirus can spread.
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.
