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.
I confirm that I am not presenting any of the following symptoms of COVID-19 identified by Alberta Health Services:
