Just when you think spring has arrived and summer’s not far away, you remember it’s still cold season. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, or CDC, says that a common cold usually includes sneezing, runny nose, sore throat and coughing. Symptoms can last for up to two weeks, the CDC says.
To promote a healthy and clean environment, Pasadena orthodontist Dr. Vickie Greenberg and our staff give a great deal of attention to sanitation and sterilization in our office at all times, as well as following all requirements for sterilizing instruments and work surfaces. For the protection of other patients and our team members, 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! Have a great rest of the week!
