In my thirty 30 years of passion and commitment to the dental profession, I’ve NEVER been so proud and inspired by the heroic choices dental professionals are making to be an ESSENTIAL part of the overall health care team.
To me, a Hero is a person who is admired or idealized for their courage, overcomes all obstacles and forges toward helping others. Heroes take risks and create action to contribute to a bigger cause. They give generously of their time and resources toward being part of the solution.
The COVID-19 crisis pandemic caused the dental professionals licensing colleges and the public health to mandate a suspension on all non-emergency dental services. As a result, dental offices were forced to temporarily close their doors for the first time in history.
Once the SHOCK subsided and FEAR was overcome, these heroes adapted, researched and educated themselves to implement new screenings for their office and new ways to communicate to their patients. They went into action to keep their doors open. They learned how to handle COVID-19. They found and bought the protective wear. They made sure they are IPAC compliant and against contamination. They RISK their own lives to treat dental emergencies in the practice to prevent dental pain patients visiting the hospital emergency rooms and resources needed for COVID-19.
