An In-Depth Expert Look at Covid-19 Point-of-Care Testing
With the first point-of-care tests for COVID-19 now available on the market, dental practitioners, preparing to go back to work, are wondering whether or not they will be able to use these tests in their practices to screen patients before initiating treatment.
But how effective are these tests and what are the wider implications for dentists using these tests in their practices?
In this in-depth interview, Dr. Aaron Burry, Dr. Michael Glick, and Dr. Mark Donaldson unpack the scarce evidence available so far; and give their expert views on how point-of-care tests work, how effective they are, and the clinical and ethical implications they may have on dentists across Canada.
