Study Finds Continued Care Tied to Safety Measures During the COVID-19 Pandemic


Researchers examined the connection between COVID-19 prevention measures and the practice of dentistry in El Salvador and Mexico between 2020 and 2021. The study included 1,719 dentists who answered a 20-question survey about their practices during this period. The results, which were published in Cureus, showed that dental practices that used phone triage, temperature screening, physical distancing, and face shields were more likely to continue providing dental services during the pandemic. The study highlights the importance of public health agencies promoting the adoption of safety measures in dental care, even as the most severe phases of the pandemic subside, to prepare for future pandemics or resurgences of infections due to new virus variants.
