COVID-19 guidelines and standards for dental offices

Current Guidelines:

When utilizing these 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.

Current Standards

A standard is the same as a regulation. As such, dental offices are mandated to adhere to it.
