Dr. Alexander Mutchmor – Update on COVID-19: Personal Protective Equipment & Recommendations from Regulators
In a pandemic health crisis not seen in our lifetime, extraordinary measures are being taken to restrict the spread of Covid-19. Measures that are constantly changing as we learn more every day.
Dr. Alexander Mutchmor, President of the Canadian Dental Association, is joined by Dr. Aaron Burry, Associate Director of Professional Affairs CDA, to discuss developments in the supply and use of Personal Protective Equipment, latest recommendations from Provincial regulators, and balancing the need to provide emergency care while maintaining proper social distancing.
Still a wet glove dentist himself, Dr. Burry explains: It’s not something that comes with an owner’s manual that tells you exactly what to do. You’re kind of reassessing every day based on what the Province and the regulators are telling you.
To stay abreast of developments, Dr. Mutchmor recommends that all dentists check their Provincial Association website at least daily.
