On May 19, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated Interim Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Dental Settings During the COVID-19 Response. This interim CDC guidance provides details for dental health care personnel as they begin to resume non-emergency care for patients. Considerations for prioritizing the most critical dental services and providing care in a way that minimizes harm to patients from delaying care and harm to personnel from potential exposure to COVID-19 will be discussed.
Upon completion of this session, participants should be able to:
• Describe patient and personnel screening for COVID-19.
• Explain dental facility and equipment considerations as dental practices resume non-emergency care.
• Review respiratory protection measures for dental personnel.
The ADA designates this activity as 1 CE credit.
