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 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 staff, dentists and 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 have been made aware of the Alberta Dental Association and College Guidelines that under the current pandemic dental care is permitted.
