Is it normal that the staff doesn’t wash hands in between patients but just changes the gloves. Also I asked for staff to wear masks during my appointments to tighten braces. I hate someone breathing and talking above my open mouth. But it seemed like a hassle and my orthodontist even said “ you haven’t gotten over that yet?”
Also all patients are seen together in one room. The orthodist was asking me about a severely decayed tooth and I found it embarrassing to be discussed in front of other patients. I’m a nurse and it’s totally different standards to what we do in hospitals. Is all that pretty standard for orthodontists?
