Synopsis

Greek philosopher Epictetus is credited with this statement: “It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”

To say that this time in the dental industry is unprecedented would be an understatement. Office closures, team furloughs and layoffs, locating PPE and knowing how to use it confused many, and few offices were prepared for the consequences. Government mandates, employees’ reluctance to return and patients’ fears of possible exposure significantly affected our practices. The term “new normal” became an over-used phrase to describe the unknown factors that changed our practice and our lives.

But now what? What do we put in place to help our practices grow and create a better version of our work?

Join us for a free webinar to learn how to increase your practice’s effectiveness. You will also see how cloud-based practice management system Dentrix Ascend can help you improve your team’s efficiency and set your practice up for ongoing success.

If this is, indeed, a time of “new normal,” learn how to create new and better “norms” that generate exceptional results. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn strategies to help you build a better, stronger practice and how Dentrix Ascend can help you achieve your goals.

Abstract

COVID-19, the coronavirus disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), has caused widespread concern in the dental community. When the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a public health emergency, many dental offices were forced to close in the wake of the worldwide spread of the disease. Since the onset of COVID-19, hundreds of research articles have been written about the disease, and every governmental organization and public health agency worldwide has issued statements on extensive measures to reduce disease transmission and control the outbreak. As stay-at-home orders are lifted and dental offices begin to reopen, finding both current and specific recommendations for returning to work can be overwhelming for dental healthcare providers. The aim of this article is to provide the most current, scientific information about the impact of COVID-19 on the practice of dentistry, including a brief overview of disease epidemiology, routes of transmission, and symptoms. In addition, specific return-to-work guidelines will be discussed with a focus on patient management, workplace controls, and infection control strategies.
