Maine Practices Can Open To Routine Dentistry

Maine DHHS and the Maine Board of Dental Practice have issued guidance which acknowledges the US CDC is in the process of updating its recommendations, and if the updated guidance was not posted by Monday, May 18, DHHS will defer to ADA and MDA guidance for reopening dental practices in Maine. The CDC has not updated its recommendations as of yet, so DHHS will now defer to the ADA Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit and the MDA's Guidance Establishing Safe Dental care in the Era of COVID-19. The MDA and ADA guidance can be found on this page, and more resources can be found HERE.
