During these uncertain times it can be difficult to know where to turn for information. Many doctors and their staff are wondering what will await us on the other side of the pandemic. While it’s difficult to say, there are some good resources that can help guide you as you make decisions about your dental practice, staff members, and patients. We recommend you take time to review some of the following links.
The ADA has a page dedicated to COVID-19 Practice Resources. It includes links to pages with information about employment and staff issues, security, patient communication, vendors and third party payers, and general practice guidance.
The Texas Academy of General Dentistry has sponsored several free CE webinars about different issues related to COVID-19, including ones on best human resource practices, infection control strategies, and on mitigating the impact of the disease. They have been recorded and made available through the TAGD website.
Here at DDSmatch Southwest, we had been looking forward to gathering with many of you at the annual spring events, the Texas Dental Association Meeting (which has been cancelled) and the New Mexico Dental Association Fiesta (which may occur in an online capacity, if feasible). We will miss interacting with you in person, for the time being, and wish you and your loved ones the best during these trying times. Please stay safe and be well.
