How to Protect Yourself and Keep up with Oral Hygiene

Don’t neglect your trips to the Dentist during Coronavirus, dental offices are reopening for routine care appointments and taking precautions to keep their staff and patients safe from exposure to coronavirus. Oral health and hygiene are still important factors in your overall health, and avoiding the dentist is the last thing you want to do when concerned about health. The ADA (American Dental Association) is now recommending that dental teams weigh the risks in their area against the need to provide proper care for their patients. 

Dental offices are stepping up precautions by increasing sanitation measures and spacing out appointments to help patients feel safe. If you’d like to schedule a routine dentist appointment, be sure to call ahead and give your dentist time to prepare for your visit.

Here’s what some dentist offices are doing while reopening for routine care:

  • Scheduling appointments on a staggered interval
  • Calling patients before appointments to inquire about COVID-19 symptoms
  • Checking patients temperature upon arrival
  • Asking patients about recent travel
  • Space out waiting room chairs to practice social distancing
  • Asking patients about interactions with people carrying COVID-19
  • Advise patients NOT to arrive early to appointments
  • Asking patients not to bring children, or anyone not getting dental care, to your appointments
  • Eliminating waiting room luxuries like toys and magazines
  • Having patients wait outside until the dental team is ready to see them
  • Disinfecting all surfaces and tools on a more frequent basis
  • Wearing additional protective gear
  • Covering patient’s mouths with rubber dental dams
