Is It Safe To Visit The Dentist?

When asked about the safety of dental visits, Dr. Norbo replied, “I think it’s absolutely safe…we’re here for you…we feel like we have a safe environment for our patients to return to.”

Is It Safe To Visit The Dentist?

CBS This Morning (6/18) reports that dental offices are reopening, and all 50 states “are now allowing routine dental care” such as teeth cleanings and cavity fillings “after months of handling only emergencies.” The segment, hosted by CBS’s medical editor Dr. Tara Narula, includes quotes from Dr. Kirk Norbo, co-chair of the ADA’s Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery, and Dr. Peter Shatz, chair of the Georgia Dental Association COVID-19 Innovation Task Force and also a member of the ADA Committee on Annual Meetings, on changes before and during dental procedures in response to the pandemic. Dr. Shatz states, “The biggest risk in dentistry is uncontrolled infections. Those could lead to systemic disease and can aggravate underlying heart problems.” When asked about the safety of dental visits, Dr. Norbo replied, “I think it’s absolutely safe…we’re here for you…we feel like we have a safe environment for our patients to return to.”
