Covid 19

What to Know Before Your Visit With Us:

There is a short questionnaire that needs to be filled out and returned to us via our email address: office@mckennaortho.com prior to you or your family member's appointment. Please click the link below to access and fill out this form:


In accordance with the CT State Dental Association we are employing the following guidelines:

  • Patient(s) are to brush their teeth and rinse with Listerine or Peroxyl (if they have it at home) prior to their appointment with us.
  • All patients are required to wear a face mask when entering and leaving the building. We will be sanitizing the patient’s hands before and after their appointment.  
  • Upon arriving for your scheduled appointment, we ask that you remain in your car and call our front desk at 203-790-9155 to let us know you have arrived. We will call or text your cell phone when the office is ready to receive you. At this time, we are asking that only the patients come up and any additional family members remain in the vehicle. We will be calling the parent and discussing the patient’s progress and at that time scheduling their next appointment.

If you have an appointment scheduled within the next few weeks, please contact our office if you experience any of the following:

  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath
  • Travel within the past 14 days

You should know that our staff and patients' safety is our upmost priority. We will be monitoring the temperatures of our staff and patients entering the office. Dr. McKenna and our staff will be following the proper PPE guidelines (gowns, masks, face shields, and gloves) along with safe distancing guidelines. We thank you for your cooperation at this time and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call.

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.
