Number of dental practices 'open as usual' still declining: ADA

The number of dentists reporting that their practice was open and operating as usual continues to gradually decline, according to poll findings from the American Dental Association's Health Policy Institute.

Results come from the ADA's nationwide COVID-19 impact poll of 1,461 dentists for the week of Oct. 11.

When asked, "What is the current status of your dental practice?" 61.6 percent of respondents said "open and business as usual." This is compared to 62.1 percent the week of Sept. 13, 64.8 percent the week of Aug. 16, and 67.7 percent the week of July 12.

This month, 37.4 percent of dentists said their practices were open but had lower patient volume than normal
