Consent to dental treatment during COVID-19
I am aware that the current COVID19- pandemic brings a number of known risks and a number of unknown risks. I have chosen to seek dental treatment during the pandemic in the knowledge that much is still unknown about the virus.
I understand the coronavirus that causes COVID19- has a long incubation period during which time carriers of the virus may not show symptoms yet still be highly contagious. I also understand that some people may have the virus but may not ever have any symptoms. I therefore understand it is impossible to determine who has the virus and I understand that I must assume that anyone anywhere could be infected and infectious. I accept attending Fulham Dental Centre in this context. Initial I understand that receiving dental treatment means that the UK government’s instruction to maintain social distancing of at least 2 meters is not achievable during treatment.
I understand that Fulham Dental Centre has taken thorough precautions to make sure my treatment is provided as safely as possible. I consent to examination and treatment as appropriate being provided during the current phase of Covid19- and accept the risks.
