A Message from ADA President, Dr. Chad P. Gehani on the Assembly of a New ADA Task Force for Post-Pandemic Dental Practice Recovery
The COVID-19 crisis has had a challenging impact on our dental community. Yet, the strength of our profession has never been more evident—for now, we may be distant, but we are not disconnected. While we guide dentistry through these trying times, the American Dental Association also has its eye on what will come next.
Last week, I assembled the ADA’s Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery, which will oversee the Association’s development of tools for dentists as they bounce back from the effects of pandemic-related practice restrictions and closures.
The Task Force, which had its first meeting last week, has the overall goal of helping dentists get back to serving their communities while protecting patients, office staff, and themselves.
The group is comprised of practicing dentists with support from ADA experts in science, practice, law, regulation, and other key areas. You will hear more about the Task Force’s progress in the coming weeks.
Our community is in it together as we navigate these trying times. And as dental practices reopen their doors and our colleagues get back on their feet, we will be in it together still.
Yours in service,
Chad P. Gehani, DDS
President, American Dental Association
