ADA creates COVID-19 recovery task force

The American Dental Association has assembled a task force to help dentists bounce back after the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many dental practices have implemented restrictions or completely closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The ADA has recommended practices keep their offices closed through April 30.

The Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery will work to help dentists get back to work while also protecting patients, office staff and themselves. The task force is composed of practicing dentists and ADA experts. Rudy Liddell, DMD, and Kirk Norbo, DDS, serve as co-chairs.

"The COVID-19 crisis has had a challenging impact on our dental community," said ADA President Chad Gehani, DDS. "Yet the strength of our profession has never been more evident ­­–– for now, we may be distant, but we are not disconnected. While we guide dentistry through these trying times, the American Dental Association also has its eye on what will come next."
