ADA offers return-to-work toolkit for practices

By DrBicuspid Staff

April 28, 2020 -- The ADA's Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery has created a Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit to help dentists resume practice operations as some states begin to reopen from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The toolkit focuses on the short-term management of dental practices and includes a sample "welcome back" letter to patients, preappointment screening guidance, in-office patient registration procedures, reception area preparation strategies, a chairside checklist, staff protection strategies, and a shopping list for supplies, according to the ADA.

The association also noted that dentists may consider a soft launch for their practices to help protect their office staff. New strategies could then be discussed and practiced before welcoming patients back, the ADA noted.
