This comes as Dental Update in partnership with Denplan launches an online conference featuring a three-day programme of webinars that will discuss clinical ways forward in a COVID-19 world.

More than 7,000 dental professionals have already registered as practices await the green light from government as to when they can reopen.

Meanwhile, Edmund Proffitt, chief executive of the British Dental Industry Association, is calling for a collaborative approach to the road to recovery and believes there is scope for optimism in dentistry once lockdown restrictions have been lifted.

He wants practitioners and dental companies to work together to lessen the health risks and ensure a safer return to practice and suggests collaboration will be key to ensuring the successful implementation of protocols and PPE.

He believes dentists and their teams need to have confidence in the industry to supply correct PPE and other mitigation techniques and products as the world of dentistry plans to get back on its feet.
