Cold and flu season is here – Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that a common cold usually includes sneezing, runny nose, sore throat and coughing. Symptoms can last for up to two weeks.
To promote a healthy and clean environment, Dr. W. Michael Allen and our entire staff give a great deal of attention to sanitation and sterilization in our Oceanside and Fallbrook offices at all times, as well as following all requirements for sterilizing instruments and work surfaces. For the protection of other patients and our staff at Allen Orthodontics, we always ask that patients reschedule their appointments if they have any type of cold or illness that can infect others.
And remember to constantly wash your hands and avoid contact with those who are ill! Stay Healthy!
