This is a rapidly evolving situation and information is changing frequently. Find important links, resources, and guidance regarding COVID-19 below. You may also access information from the New York State Department of Health or call their novel coronavirus hotline for advice at: 1-888-364-3065.
Additional resources can also be found on the American Dental Association website.
The emergence of a new infectious disease reemphasizes the importance of vigilance relative to all aspects of infection control for Dental Healthcare Workers. Dental specific infection control during COVID-19 information may be referenced on the CDC website.
All of the return to work guidance is interim. It is focused on the short-term management of dental practice during the COVID-19 pandemic as offices begin the return to providing non-emergent care. These recommendations are pulled from the interim toolkit by the American Dental Association's (ADA's) Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery. This is not the full toolkit. Due to the ever-changing landscape and evolving knowledge of the novel coronavirus, it is expected that more recommendations will be brought forward that might impact how dentists deliver care. Further information and recommendations will be provided to our members as it becomes available.
