The Management of Dento-Facial Trauma During the Pandemic
With plans afoot to open practices across Canada, dental professionals are getting a glimpse of what the ‘new normal’ will look like. Coming to grips with new infection control measures, such as enhanced PPE, longer wait times between patients, and the pre-screening of patients for COVID-19, will surely be the next challenge in this ongoing crisis.
So, what can we learn from those who have been practicing emergency care throughout the pandemic?
Dr. John O’Keefe, Director of Knowledge Networks CDA, talks to Dr. Peter Taylor, a General Dentist from Oakville ON, about the provision of urgent care in his practice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Taylor answers key questions relating to new levels of infection control, and illustrates the ‘new normal’ through a recent case study in Dento-Facial Trauma.
