Like so many industries across the world, the dental industry has been dramatically impacted by COVID-19. As a result of the pandemic, you may have had to reschedule a dental appointment.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, updated guidelines have been set by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and state health departments and agencies.
