What does this mean for dental offices?

There should be no change in the way you practice as a result of this ruling. You and your staff should continue to follow all applicable CDC and OSHA guidelines as well as the ADA Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit and the MDA Addendum to the ADA Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit. These tools may require ADA/MDA log-in please contact MDA or DDDS office if you need assitance to log-in to reach information. 

We encourage all dental professionals to continue to practice as you have since dental offices reopened in May, and continue to keep your patients and staff safe.
