Updated Covid-19 dental guidance

AN updated guidance synopsis on the implications of Covid-19 for the safe management of general dental practice has been published by the FGDP(UK) and College of General Dentistry.

The synopsis highlights key recommendations at each step of the patient journey, and supports dental professionals to take a risk-based approach to providing safe care regardless of the national Covid-19 threat level.

The new version reflects the recently-revised guidance, which includes updated and additional recommendations on fallow periods, air ventilation, the 3-in-1 syringe, dental handpieces, air cleaners, decontamination, the protection of vulnerable staff, and the relevance of the R number and prevalence rate.
