Dental Care Alliance releases new guidelines, aims to ease confusion among dentists

Dental Care Alliance rolled out its Safe Smiles Playbook and Training program May 18, an extensive program designed to provide the DSO's dental staff with step-by-step processes and training on new safety measures.

As many dental providers struggle to understand the various guidelines and regulations issued during the COVID-19 pandemic, the program aims to develop comprehensive operating manuals, obtain sufficient personal protective equipment and conduct hundreds of mandatory training sessions.

Under the program, dental staff will be screened for COVID-19 twice daily, wear appropriate PPE and thoroughly disinfect work stations between patients. The program will also require new safety protocols to which patients need to adhere, such as pre-appointment phone screenings, curbside check-ins and pre-entry temperature checks.
