If you have a teeth cleaning or other minor dental work scheduled in the next few weeks, it likely won’t happen.
Experts said dentists are one of the highest-risk categories for transmitting and contracting COVID-19.
On Monday, the American Dental Association recommended postponing all elective procedures for the next three weeks.
“I feel like I have this duty to my patients, my team who treats patients, and the community beyond,” said Dr. Mira Albert with Brush Pediatric Dentistry. “Yet, I need to respect calls for social distancing.”
Dr. Albert is closing her practice to help with social distancing. They will still be performing emergency procedures for patients.
