NEW! ADA Return to Work Toolkit

The ADA’s Advisory Task Force for Dental Practice Recovery has developed a free toolkit with interim guidance that recommends measures to take to help protect patients, staff, and dentists from COVID-19 once dental practices can re-engage in providing the full range of oral health care.

The toolkit includes:

  • Sample letter to patients
  • Guidance on pre-appointment screening
  • In-office patient registration procedures
  • Reception area preparation strategies
  • Chairside checklist
  • Staff protection strategies
  • Supplies shopping list

As the COVID-19 pandemic and knowledge of the disease change, the toolkit will be updated.
