NYSDA Advocacy Successful -- Governor Cuomo Announces Dentists Can Reopen Statewide Tomorrow, June 1

The good news we've been waiting for has finally arrived! After intense daily advocacy by NYSDA, including the invaluable participation in a grass-roots campaign by you, our members, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced, at 2:45 this afternoon, the approval of statewide opening of dental offices for regular dental care on June 1, 2020 – that’s tomorrow. Dentists' offices will be subject to state guidance on best practices for safety and social distancing. NYS Department of Health will likely issue updated guidelines tomorrow. In the meantime, please follow the CDC, OSHA and ADA current guidelines. More information to come.
