New Protocol at Hoch Orthodontics

* Facemask/face coverings are required for anyone entering our office *
Our office has updated all of our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the current CDC and OSHA requirements for COVID-19 to keep you and our staff safe. Plexiglass shields have been placed in front desk as well for the safety of you and our staff.

Please be patient with us as we try to accommodate everyone.  We will be making appointments in order from when we closed.  If you would like to be added to our wait list, please email us at with "APPT WAITLIST" in the subject.  Our office will be working at 50% capacity in order to leave a safe distance between patients.  We will also be increasing our hours.   

Prior to your visit, a text message will be sent to confirm your appointment along with a link to fill out a health questionnaire.  This will need to be done prior to EVERY appointment.  If you do not receive the link, it is also posted here on our website under "Patient Forms & More"

We kindly ask you to wait in your car until we are ready for you to enter our office for your appointment.  Please text (732) 812-4167 when you arrive in the parking lot.  Once we are ready, you will receive a phone call/text to let you know to enter the office.  Anyone who enters our office will need to wear a face mask or covering.  Our office has updated all of our Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to the current CDC and OSHA requirements for COVID-19.

Everyone's temperature will be taken upon entering the office.  Any person with a temperature of 99.6°F or higher will need to leave the office and have the appointment rescheduled.  If patients do not need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian, we kindly ask if you would stay in your car to limit the number of people in our office. 


Staff and doctors temperatures will also be taken prior to the start of each workday​

Once the appointment is completed, a staff member will escort the patient out of the treatment room and at that time you may come in or call to conclude the visit.

We truly appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience during this difficult time.  For the foreseeable future, this will be our daily routine until further guidance is issued by the respective organizations (CDC & OSHA).  We are excited to be able to see you all again and thrilled to be able to continue creating beautiful smiles!
