CDC Guidance for Dental Settings Echoes ADA Guidance
CDG follows the following CDC & ADA guidelines
Contact all patients prior to dental treatment.
Telephone screen all patients for symptoms consistent with COVID-19. If the patient reports symptoms of COVID-19, avoid non-emergent dental care and use the Phone Advice Line Tool for Possible COVID-19 patients. If possible, delay dental care until the patient has recovered.
Telephone triage all patients in need of dental care. Assess the patient’s dental condition and determine whether the patient needs to be seen in the dental setting.
Request that the patient limit the number of visitors accompanying the patient to the dental appointment to only those people who are necessary.
Advise patients to wear a cloth face covering or facemask when entering the facility and will undergo screening for fever and symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
Systematically assess all patients and visitors upon arrival.
Ensure that the patient and visitors have donned their own cloth face covering, or provide a facemask if supplies are adequate.
Ask about the presence of fever or other symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
Actively take the patient’s temperature.
If the patient is febrile (temperature < 100.4˚F)* and otherwise without symptoms consistent with COVID-19, then dental care may be provided using appropriate engineering and administrative controls, work practices, and infection control considerations (described below).
Ask patient to re-don their face covering at the completion of their clinical dental care when they leave the treatment area.
Even when CDG screen patients for respiratory infections, inadvertent treatment of a dental patient who is later confirmed to have COVID-19 may occur. To address this, CDG should request that the patient inform the dental clinic if they develop symptoms or are diagnosed with COVID-19 within 2 days following the dental appointment.
*For the general population, fever is measured as a temperature ≥100.4˚F. Fever may be subjective or confirmed. If the patient has a fever strongly associated with a dental diagnosis (e.g., pulpal and periapical dental pain and intraoral swelling is present), but no other symptoms consistent with COVID-19 are present, care can be provided with appropriate protocols.
