The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on the dental industry. Many dental practices were forced to close for a portion of 2020, unless handling emergencies. Fortunately, things are picking up, and many of our dentists have already achieved their pre-COVID revensures!
The good news is that dentists are likely to be burdened with an influx of appointments in 2021. Many patients have not seen their dentist since the start of the pandemic and will be looking to book an appointment. However, dental clinics will have to comply with the set regulations, on top of engineering a busy schedule.
Here are three expert tips for maintaining a successful and Pandemic Proof practice in 2021:
1. Implement the Stipulated Regulations
Dentistry has been declared as an essential service. However, dental clinics are still required to comply with the set regulations. For example, they are required to observe social and physical distancing guidelines. Dental clinics are leaders in cleanliness standards, but additional hygiene measures are recommended. As such, develop a strategy to comply with these guidelines to avoid closure or hefty penalties.
2. Stay Updated & Act Fast
The COVID-19 pandemic has been anything but predictable. To this end, authorities have been issuing new guidelines every other day. Both the Canadian Dental Association and the Ontario Dental Association have compiled great resources for practicing in the COVID-19 era. It is important to comply with these guidelines for everyone’s safety – and for your practice’s sake. As such, stay updated on the latest developments and be quick to implement any official recommendations.
