1. I knowingly and willingly consent to dental treatment at Portland Smiles by Dr. Kathryn Buss and any designated associates and employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  1. I understand that Dr. Kathryn Buss is following CDC guidelines and an Executive Order by Governor Mills
  1. I understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms yet are still highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has it and who does not given the current limitations and availability in COVID-19 viral testing. I understand that dental procedures create aerosol(water spray) which is one way the disease is spread. The ultra-fine nature of the spray may linger in the air for hours, which may transmit the COVID-19 virus.
  1. Risk of transmission: I understand that due to the frequency of visits of other dental patients, characteristics of the virus, and the characteristics of dental procedures, that I have an elevated risk of contracting the virus simply by being in a dental office.
  1. I am unaware of being a possible carrier or infected: I confirm that I have not tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 30 days and that I am not presenting with any of the following symptoms of COVID-19:
    1. Fever of 100.5 degrees Fahrenheit or 37 degrees Celsius or higher
    2. Shortness of breath
    3. Dry cough
    4. Runny nose
    5. Sore throat.
    6. Diminished sense of taste and smell
  1. Contact with infected: I confirm that I have not knowingly been in close contact defined as 6 feet or less for a duration of fifteen minutes or more with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days, or with anyone that has had the above stated symptoms in the last 14 days.
  1. Public travel: I confirm that I have not traveled outside of the United States in the past 14 days. I confirm that I have not traveled domestically by commercial airline, bus, or train within the last 14 days.
