NOTICE OF DISABILITY POLICY
Our practice is committed to making quality orthodontic care available to all patients, and to provide accommodations for disabilities whenever reasonably possible. We have also made efforts to enhance the accessibility of our website to remove barriers of communication and information access for disabled patients, parents, and guardians.
If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, or TTY) and the format of any material on this Web site interferes with your ability to access information, please contact our Office Manager at 417-888-3030. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the Web address of the requested material, and your contact information. Users who need accessibility assistance can also contact us by phone through the Missouri Information Relay Service at 711 for TTY/Voice communication.
Accessibility Design Guidelines
Our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:
Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act
The Practice will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in the Practice’s provision of orthodontist treatment.
The Practice does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
Effective Communication: The Practice will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the Practice’s treatment services, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures: The Practice will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all Practice programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in Practice offices and facilities, even though pets are generally prohibited.
Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a Practice program, service, or activity, should contact the Office Manager/ADA Coordinator at 417-888-3030 as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours before your appointment or a scheduled event.
The ADA does not require the Practice to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
Complaints that a Practice program, service, or activity is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to:
Office Manager/ADA Coordinator
1524 E. Bradford Parkway, Springfield, MO 65804
Or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Missouri Relay Services: Dial 711
The Practice will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy.
