Covid-19 Safeguards at the Dentist

Dentists are acutely aware of the dangers posed by infectious diseases. Protecting themselves and their patients from Covid-19 has raised protective measures to new levels and a dentist’s office is now one of the safest places to be during the current pandemic. Basic safety measures include:

  • Observing social distancing
  • Proper office ventilation
  • Limited number of patients at one time

Even for simple procedures like teeth cleaning the dentist and assistant will wear face masks in addition to a full face shield to further protect against possible transmission of the virus. In some cases, a virtual consultation will be made available to limit personal interaction.
