2021 July 5 Update on Covid 19 Pandemic Guidelines

2021 July 5 Key-Considerations-for-Dental-Practice-Moving-Forward-During-the-COVID-19-Pandemic-Updated

As a result of the AADA letter to the Minister of Health on May 31, 2020, the Colleges have worked together so that dental assistants, dentists and dental hygienists all have consistent information and expectations.

 

2021 February 12, Dental Practice Guidelines replaces these documents:

  • Our COVID-19 Return to Non-essential Practice
  • ADA&C’s Expectations and Pathway for Patient Care during the COVID-19 Pandemic
  • CRDHA’s COVID-19 Return to Work Guidelines for Dental Hygienists

 

 

AADA
The following checklist is provided to ensure that dental offices employing several dental professions in the same workplace can be confident that they are clear on how the guidelines from the different colleges affect the dental practice and how the staff can ensure consistency in their application of those guidelines.
