Webinar: Oral Health Care In the New World of Dental Practice Post-Covid-19

2 CEU, Core • 5-7pm • $29

Presented by: Paul Glassman DDS, MA, MBA and Alan W. Budenz, MS, DDS, MBA
This program will continue and expand the discussion started at the May 12 SDDS program on dental practice in the world of COVID-19 distancing requirements, the transition back to opening dental practices, and the dental practice environment post-COVID-19. The presenters will describe a practice strategy that includes using teledentistry to reach and engage existing patients and people who formerly were not receiving dental care. It will emphasize the benefits of expanding the use of minimally invasive non-aerosol producing procedures and describe how patient care can be provided with less use of aerosol producing procedures than has been typical in dental practice. The combination of these strategies could be effective strategies to allow dental practices to survive and thrive in a world that will be challenging for many practices for some time to come.

Participants will be able to:

  • Discuss predictions about the dental practice environment as the world emerges from severe distancing requirements toward a new normal for dental practice.
  • Explain the role that teledentisty can play in supporting pre- and post-visit office care.
  • Describe specific minimally invasive dentistry techniques that can allow practices to address the needs of many patients without the need to use aerosol-producing procedures.
  • Consider a mixture of the strategies described in this program as they plan for re-opening and operating their practices.
