ADA Releases Document to Guide COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
Although the American Dental Association (ADA) stopped short of recommending a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for oral health professionals like the American Medical Association did for healthcare workers, the organization strongly recommends all dental providers get vaccinated.

- What should I do if a staff member refuses to be vaccinated?
