Dear Genecov Orthodontics Patients, 

We hope this letter finds everyone healthy, happy, and prepared to slowly begin the return to routines. We are all ready to get back to work, see everyone again and continue your journey towards an awesome smile. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone; responses are being updated daily. We want to update you on our office, it’s measure reopening and the steps we are taking to keep our patients, our team and all their families healthy.  We will be following rigorous protocols to ensure the wellbeing of everyone connected with Genecov Orthodontics. 

We ask for your patience. We had to reschedule hundreds of appointments and we know that there is a strong desire to get your treatment back on track as soon as possible. We will, but it will not be as efficient as we are used to in our office. We will have to be very firm in our processes and procedures. They have been well-thought-out and reviewed countless times by Dr Genecov Dr. Brothers and our entire team.
