Kentucky dental practice furloughs more than half of workforce

Louisville, Ky.-based Mortenson Dental Partners has furloughed more than half of its workforce, according to Louisville Business First.

The dental practice has postponed all non-essential dental procedures due to the coronavirus pandemic. As a result, Mortenson Dental Partners has seen its patient count decline 90 percent.

Employees will be furloughed for 90 days, when the practice will hopefully be able to resume operations.

"This was an extremely tough decision for the short term that will help to ensure our stability for the future," Mortenson Dental Partners said in a statement.
