COVID-19 guidelines for dental offices

When utilizing the OSHA, CDC, and the ADA guidance documents, dentists must use their professional judgment. All are guidance documents intended to assist dentists and employers in working through the issues associated with providing care to their patients in a safe working environment. Each entity may provide slightly differing guidance, and it is up to the dentist to determine how to proceed.
