It only takes a minute to complete this form. It helps us keep our valued patients and community safe! If it’s possible you have had any of the symptoms, or have a reasonable belief that you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, please take some time before scheduling your appointments with us.

Attention: Cramer Orthodontics Family!
We have been hard at work preparing our office to continue serving our patients in the Denton and Krum areas. Things will be changing as we adjust to the recommended guidelines, giving you peace of mind and protecting the health of our community, as well as our team. During this time, our efforts have gone into planning office adjustments and safety procedures. We wish to ensure that your next visit here is the same great experience you’ve come to expect from the Cramer Orthodontics team!
Texas Governor Greg Abbott has given the go-ahead for health care professionals to resume seeing patients so long as they promote safe practices and social distancing. Though your visit to Cramer Orthodontics may not be the same as you have been accustom to, we want you to know how much we care and that we are committed to making your experience as safe as possible.

Our Office Safety Precautions
To help prevent the transmission of COVID-19, as well as any other respiratory infections, we will be adhering to standardized infection control measures. These include such actions as performing hand hygiene, providing tissues, and offering facemasks to patients who may be coughing. We will be intently following routine cleaning and disinfection practices, such as: using cleaners and water to pre-clean surfaces prior to applying an EPA-registered hospital-grade disinfectant, as well as appropriate sterilization of all tools and equipment. We also use new facemasks and gloves for each patient per guidelines set by the FDA and CDC.
While our office has always held to these standard precautions, there are several practical recommendations we are now implementing to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19.
- Screening patients for signs or symptoms of infection when we update their medical histories.
- Making sure our masks, gloves, and eye protection are appropriate for the procedures performed.
- Cleaning and disinfecting public areas frequently, including door handles, chairs, and bathrooms.
If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please notify our office if you experience any of the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Travel within the past 14 days to significantly affected locations or geographical regions
We will discuss your health status, the dental treatment you require, and whether or not visiting our office will be safe for you, our other patients, and our staff.
When you visit our office, we ask that you arrive on time for your appointment, rather than too early. This will minimize the amount of time you spend waiting in your vehicle. If you have respiratory symptoms, we will ask that you wear a facemask.
How Can You Prevent Contracting Or Spreading COVID-19?
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
- Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Do not use your hands.
- Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough, or difficulty breathing, seek medical attention, and call in advance. Calling in advance will allow your healthcare provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility.
