ADA updates COVID-19 dental office procedures guide

Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all dental practice employees

The ADA released its Update to Office Procedures During COVID-19, which provides the latest information dentists need for conducting COVID-19 workplace hazard assessments and making practice decisions, ADA News reported. Duc "Duke" M. Ho, D.D.S., chair of the ADA Council on Dental Practice, said risk assessments are required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and are important to ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all dental practice employees. "It is critical for dental practices to conduct a hazard assessment that specifically takes local conditions, the practice's physical structures, staff health considerations -- like staff vaccination rates -- and other factors into account." Dr. Ho said. The update covers issues such as having a safety plan for COVID-19 exposure and control, best practices for assessing and managing workplace hazards and pre-appointment screenings for patients.
