FGDP (UK) and the College of General Dentistry issue updated Covid-19 guidance synopsis

22 October 2020

The Faculty of General Dental Practice UK and the College of General Dentistry have published an updated synopsis of their guidance on the implications of Covid-19 for the safe management of general dental practice.

The synopsis highlights key recommendations at each step of the patient journey and supports dental professionals to take a risk-based approach to providing safe care regardless of the national Covid-19 threat level.

The new version reflects the recently-revised guidance, which includes updated and additional recommendations on fallow periods, air ventilation, the three-in-one syringe, dental headpieces, air cleaners, decontamination, the protection of vulnerable staff and the relevance of the R number and prevalence rate.

It is available at www.fgdp.org.uk/implications-covid-19-safe-management-general-dental-practice-practical-guide and www.cgdent.uk/standards-guidance
