COVID-19 AND THE PRACTICE OF DENTISTRY
The practice of dentistry as we knew it was abruptly disrupted in early March 2020. The following information is provided for loyal referral offices of Dr. Jin Kim's periodontal practice, members of West Coast Study Cub (WCSC), and members of Global Dental implant Academy (GDIA) to cope with the rapidly changing dental environment.
Ever-changing information and data were collected and analyzed from various sources, including the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), American Dental Association (ADA), American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), and other national health authorities. Dental organizations and their diligent members including the International Association of Dental Specialists (iADS), North American Society of Periodontists (NASP), and GDIA have contributed and shared valuable information compiled in this section. As every practitioners' needs and the situation may be unique and possibly vastly different, do use the information at your discretion and with wise thoughts and choices.
