ADA urges dental offices to close through April 30

By DrBicuspid Staff

April 3, 2020 -- The ADA has called on dental practices to continue to postpone elective procedures until at least April 30 in the wake of the growing COVID-19 pandemic.

It is urging practices to remain focused on urgent, emergency procedures. This new guidance comes as its initial call to close through April 6 ends.
