Return-to-work guidance plans to be agreed for dental practices
This includes the British Dental Association, the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, the Association of Dental Implantology and the newly formed British Association of Private Dentistry.
Dental care professionals are represented to ensure all members of the dental team are able to contribute to this vital piece of work.
The Task Group includes patient representation as well as significant professional experience and expertise in a range of areas.
These include infection prevention and control, practice management and emergency medicine during the COVID-19 pandemic, and further individuals and organisations will be added or consulted over the coming weeks.
Minimising the risk of COVID-19 transmission within and outwith general dental practices as a result of re-opening will bring significant implications for patient care and practice management.
