Reopening Recommendations for Dental Practices
Many states are allowing dental offices to reopen in May with new guidelines and restrictions from federal, state and local governments being published daily.
The American Dental Association and state dental associations are advising dentists to contact their malpractice carriers to obtain a patient consent form to use related to COVID-19.
If you have determined that you can comply with the new mandates for operation, attached is a sample patient consent form template you can ask your attorney to review for use in your particular jurisdiction.
If any patients answer yes to either the travel or symptom-related questions, they can be scheduled no less than 14 days from their travel return date or from the date their symptoms end.
