The Covid-19 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic has had a big impact on the oral-healthcare sector because of the risk the virus implies to dental professionals and patients. The EFP has launched a survey for periodontists and dental hygienists to find out how they have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis.
The EFP has created a safety protocol so the clinics can operate safely despite the Covid-19 crisis and manage their patients before, during, and after their treatment. The following infographics illustrate how ot perform the patient triage, patient management in the dental practice, and treatment and post-treatment routines, as well a phone-triage questionnaire with questions to ask patients when they call the dental practice to make an appointment.
