Alert: The MDS Issues Guidance on COVID-19
As the facts and situation around coronavirus and COVID-19 continue to evolve, and in step with Governor Baker’s recent Declaration of a State of Emergency, the Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) Executive Committee and Board of Trustees is issuing the following guidance for dentists in Massachusetts.
The MDS strongly recommends that dentists practicing in the Commonwealth close their offices from March 17 to April 6 (extended to May 4) to patients seeking elective and non-urgent care. As always, it is expected that dentists will continue to be available as needed for emergency management.
This is not guidance we are issuing lightly, and it is being done out of an abundance of caution during these turbulent times. As health care professionals, we all have a role to play in slowing the spread of the coronavirus and “flattening the curve” in order to follow sound scientific, public health advice, help limit infections, and slow the spread of the virus.
The spread of COVID-19 will be determined by our collective actions now, and this recommendation is being made out of an abundance of caution. We believe by taking these extraordinary precautions, dentists can make a difference in helping to preserve the limited supply of personal protection equipment (PPE) critical for emergency dental care and frontline health care personnel responding to the pandemic.
