ADA’s COVID-19 Response

Hear how we’re supporting dentists – from the mouths of our members.

Florida Dental Offices Are Open for Business

The governor issued Executive Order 20-112, which outlines protocols that need to be met in order to restart elective procedures. 

Florida is currently in Phase 2 of its reopening plan.

The state of Florida has put out FAQs for additional guidance on Phase 2 (Executive Order 20-139).

The American Dental Association (ADA) released guidance on reopening dental practices in the form of a toolkit that was developed based on the work of the ADA’s Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery co-chaired by FDA Immediate Past President Dr. Rudy Liddell. This toolkit is focused on the short-term management of dental practices during the COVID-19 pandemic as providers return to non-emergent care and includes resources such as staff protection strategies, a chairside checklist for working in the operatory, a customizable letter to patients, guidance for pre-appointment screening, in-office patient registration, post-procedure patient exit and much more.

The ADA issued guidance for implementing COVID-19 hazard assessments in dental settings that can be used to mitigate risk. The ADA also released a hazard assessment checklist as a supplementary tool (both require an ADA member login). These are complementary pieces to the ADA Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit and will enable dentists to provide dental care in a safe and healthy work environment for employees while reducing the risk of COVID-19 spread for all.

FDA members are committed to protecting the health and well-being of people of all ages. The FDA was established in 1884 to ensure that patients received the highest quality of care from dental professionals.
