To help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and to protect their health and that of their patients, dentists are taking extra precautions at their practices. Below are some of them.
• All patients must wear face masks and also be screened before the consultation.
• Dentists are using personal protective equipment (PPE) such as masks, face shields, gowns and gloves.
• Dentists are encouraging their patients to maintain social distancing as well as offering virtual consultations.
Talk to your dentist about what can be done to keep your teeth healthy during these trying times.
