Announcement for Patients of Gabriel Orthodontics LLC

Covid-19 Update

Update 07/01/2021

 We will be following the strict guidelines of the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Wasco County Health Department.

These guidelines are put in place to maintain the health and welfare of our patients, staff and the community at large. We appreciate your assistance with these requests and ask that you arrive for your appointment with patience while we get our new routines in place.

What our patients should expect:

  • Masks will be required for all patients, staff and visitors. NO exceptions. Please arrive wearing a mask.
  • Only patients and one family member are allowed to appointments.
  • All persons entering the clinic will have their temperature checked per the Oregon Health Authority guidelines prior to evaluation.
  • Please observe the 6 foot social distancing protocol at all times.
  • If you are experiencing ANY flu like symptoms, please stay at home. We will happily reschedule your appointment and provide you excellent care once your health returns to normal. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be stationed at the clinic entrance and throughout the clinic for your convenience. 


We have decided that all appointments will be scheduled in a manner that decreases the number of patients in the office and allow all persons to maintain the 6 foot social distancing requirement. If you happen to stop by, call us when you arrive to the parking area to see if the numbers allow for an impromptu visit to pay your bill or pick up elastics.  If you are high risk, medically compromised, have flu like symptoms or just prefer to not to leave home, please call let us know and we will schedule you in the future. 


What are the Gabriel Orthodontics team members doing to ensure health and safety?

  • All team members will have their temperature checked prior to the start of the workday. 
  • All team members will be wearing masks for your protection and theirs.
  • Instructions have been provided by our doctor, on the proper use of hand hygiene and personal protective equipment. 
  • All equipment, doorknobs and surfaces will be wiped down with an OSHA approved sanitizing agent in between each patient encounter. 
  • Team members have been asked to stay home if they are not feeling well, experiencing any flu like symptoms, or have been exposed to someone who is COVID 19 positive. 
  • Our team members are here to serve you.


Dr. Gabriel and staff are taking the COVID 19 threat seriously and are here to take care of your orthodontic care needs.  

We will get through this together.
