Task Force's Guidance on Re-Opening Maine Practices

The Maine Dental Association convened a task force that included dentist, hygienist, assistant, denturist, and specialist representation to develop a comprehensive set of guidelines to re-open dental practices in Maine.


ADA Return To Work Toolkit

The American Dental Association has developed a Return To Work Interim Guidance Toolkit for dental practices, as states consider easing back into normal operations. The toolkit is designed to offer useful tips for managing your practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. The toolkit includes a customizable letter to patients, guidance for patient screening, registration, and exit, staff protection strategies, a chairside checklist for working in an operatory room, and a supplies shopping list.
