CDC: Interim Infection Prevention and Control Guidance for Dental Settings During the COVID-19 Response

6/18/2020

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated Guidance for Dental Settings.

Key highlights from CDC

  • Dental settings have unique characteristics that warrant specific infection control considerations.

  • Prioritize the most critical dental services and provide care in a way that minimizes harm to patients from delaying care and harm to personnel from potential exposure to COVID-19.

  • Proactively communicate to both personnel and patients the need for them to stay at home if sick.

  • Know the steps to take if a patient with COVID-19 symptoms enters your facility.
