UPDATE: Sept. 20th, 2021
Dear Patients and Families,
Here at Yang orthodontics we’ve been keeping a close eye on the newest CDC guidelines surrounding COVID-19.
The current guidelines from the Pennsylvania’s Department of Health (DOH), following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC), state that people who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 do not need to wear a mask or social distance, unless required by law, rule and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.
However, Pennsylvania Dental Association (PDA) has confirmed that the lifting of the mask order applies only to public settings. Please be aware that the CDC guidance and DOH order change nothing for health care settings, including dental offices.
Furthermore, the majority of our patients are school-age adolescents and most K-12 students in Pennsylvania are not vaccinated. In order to maintain a safe environment, we will continue to ask all our patients to wear a mask.
We are committed to providing the most caring and safe treatment for all of our patients and are continuing to implement the following protocol:
The office is OPEN for all appointments and consults, but with a modified schedule to allow appropriate social distancing. If you wish to make an appointment, please give us a call or email us ([email protected]) with an appointment request.
