In-Person Appointment Info
Bluefish is taking daily action to continue your care while keeping both your family and our team healthy and safe. As we open our in-person schedule, we will gradually increase our availability, rather than opening a full schedule immediately. We will also continue to prioritize urgent and emergent dental and orthodontic needs. We’d rather go slow and steady so that everyone feels safe and smily…because isn’t that the point?
If you come into the office for treatment, you’ll notice a few changes as outlined below. If you have any questions about the following information, please call the office at 541-317-1887 (Bend) or 541-923-1300 (Redmond)
At least 48 hours before your appointment
COVID-19 Pandemic Dental/Ortho Treatment Consent Form
By submitting the form below, you knowingly and willingly consent to have dental/ortho treatment completed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You agree that you understand the COVID-19 virus has a long incubation period during which carriers of the virus may not show symptoms and still be highly contagious. It is impossible to determine who has it and who does not given the current limits in virus testing. Dental/Orthodontic procedures create water spray which is how the disease is spread. The ultra-fine nature of the spray can linger in the air for minutes to sometimes hours, which can transmit the COVID-19 virus.
What to expect at your appointment
Our lobby will be closed. Read our arrival & exit protocol below.
Upon arrival please remain in your car and call the office to notify them of your arrival.
The Clinical Assistant will come out to the vehicle to review the treatment and escort the patient into the office. Parents are requested to stay in the vehicle unless the staff requires your presence.
The child and parent (if present) will then go through our check-in procedure:
- Temperature will be taken with a no-touch thermometer
- Rinse with antiseptic mouth rinse
- Wash with soap and water or use hand sanitizer up to the elbows
As we are nearing the end of the appointment the front desk staff will call you and arrange the next appointment for your child.
When the appointment is completed the child will be escorted to the vehicle by the clinical assistant who will let you know what treatment was completed and explain how the visit went.
If you have any questions or concerns while waiting in the parking lot please feel free to call the office for assistance.
