Important Coronavirus Update

To our valued patients,
Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety. Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and team.

  • Our office will communicate with you a new Covid Waiver form to be read and signed prior to treatment.
  • In order to check-in, please call our office (808-486-5505 or 808-941-3355) and the front desk will check you in. You can remain in your car and we will call you back when we are ready to have you seated.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. We are asking all patients to wash their hands before and after treatment.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, and children’s toys.
  • After your appointment please call the office to set up your next appointment. This will help us reduce the number of patients in the reception area.
  • Follow up appointments will be managed to aid in social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • Please note: If you are still not comfortable with coming in for your appointment, we will be more than happy to reschedule it for you.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we are taking to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (808) 486-5505 or visit our website at www.moritaorthodontics.com.

Thank you for being a part of our Morita Orthodontics ‘ohana. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors and friends.

Mahalo,

The Morita Orthodontics Team

Notice of Temporary Closure

RE: COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

To our valued patients,

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), President Trump, the American Dental Association and the Hawaii Dental Association are recommending all dentists postpone nonemergency dental procedures for 2 weeks. Our practice is committed to protecting the community and avoiding using valuable resources that our first responders and frontline healthcare providers will need.

Our office will be closed effective today, Wednesday, March 18, and we plan to resume regular hours on Wednesday, April 1. If you are experiencing a true dental emergency including swelling or severe tooth pain, please call your general dentist office, and listen closely as emergency contact info will be available. For all nonemergent questions, please email us at office@moritaorthodontics.com.

We are so sorry for the burden this places on your schedules, but your continued health and safety are our number one priority. Our office is working diligently to reschedule all patients with existing appointments within the next 2 weeks. We will continue to evaluate the situation as it evolves and determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to normal orthodontic patient care. We ask for your compassion and understanding at this time as we all work together to keep Hawaii healthy.

Sincerely,

Your Morita Orthodontics Ohana
