What to Expect at the Dentist During COVID-19
Is it safe to visit the dentist during the COVID-19 pandemic?
By: Webster Dental - Downers Grove
A report published in The Journal of the American Dental Association stated that 99 percent of dentists are using enhanced infection control procedures when treating patients. The report added that fewer than one percent of dentists nationwide were found to be COVID-19 positive.
Is Visiting the Dentist Safe?
Yes, you may be asked to wait outside until they are ready to see you. Once you enter the office, you may have your temperature taken and be asked a few health questions.
Your dentist will be wearing different protective equipment that he or she has worn before. This could include a different mask, face shield, gown, and goggles. Also, the computer may be covered so it can be easily cleaned between patients.
After your appointment, the dental staff will thoroughly clean the room you were in with disinfectants to prepare for the next patient.
Remember, regular dental visits are an essential part of your overall health.
