In these very difficult times, I would like to lend a helping hand to our dental community and share with you, our office COVID-19 policies and daily protocol.
I have been working in Oral Surgery for eighteen years and although I am used to writing standard operating procedures and office protocols, I never, in a million years thought I would have to write one for a pandemic. My main concern is the safety of our teams and our patients and how to keep them safe moving forward.
I have gathered information from the ADA, OSHA, and AAMOS and made it our own. I hope this will help your practice or at the least, give you a few ideas on how to make changes in this new world of dentistry.
