Keeping up with dental care is more important than ever. If you're ready to visit the dentist for a routine exam or to address an oral health concern, you may notice things are a little different due to COVID-19.
Here are a few precautions some dental offices are taking:
Screening questions about having COVID-19 symptoms
Temperature checks for patients and staff
Changes to waiting room procedures
Extra protective equipment, like face masks, for patients and staff
