PRACTICAL advice for dental teams on overcoming common Covid-related challenges has been created by leading psychologists.
Dentistry during COVID-19 offers a range of suggestions and resources on issues such as difficulties in prolonged PPE use, financial concerns, increased use of remote consultations and general emotional distress.
It has been developed by the British Psychological Society (CPS) Division of Health Psychology and published by the Faculty of General Dental Practice UK (FGDP) and College of General Dentistry (CGDent).
It has been published as an adjunct to Implications of COVID-19 for the safe management of general dental practice, the CGDent-FGDP guidance on dentistry during the pandemic, which recommends that practices appoint a wellbeing lead and are able to signpost to mental wellbeing services. The new guidance promises “evidence-based recommendations as practical responses to the concerns of dental professionals, offering new ways of working informed by psychological science”.
