Should I go to the dentist during coronavirus?

Dental practices are adapting how they work in and around a patient’s mouth to account for this complicated reality. Dentists are screening patients for symptoms, limiting the number of appointments in a day, implementing stringent sanitation protocols and wearing more protective equipment to guard against the respiratory disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization suggest that respiratory droplets expelled when an infected person coughs, sneezes, talks or breathes are the primary way the virus spreads. But the CDC reports there’s “no data available to assess the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission during dental practice.”

The Washington Post has been fielding thousands of reader questions about life during the coronavirus pandemic and many have asked whether they should go to upcoming dentist appointments. Dentists and public-health experts are concerned that Americans are putting off routine cleanings, which could compound health issues in the months or years

Plexiglass, more mouthwash and a lot of questions. What to expect when you go back to the dentist

The idea of having someone poke around your mouth might be panic-inducing when we now know that COVID-19 spreads through droplets in the air, but dental offices in Ontario have been allowed to see patients again since June 1.

I myself went to see my dentist over the weekend after my appointment to get a filling was delayed for three months (I also had to fix an exposed nerve at the back of my mouth that made flossing and eating not fun at all). As someone who still isn’t ready to dine at a patio, let along dine inside a restaurant whenever Toronto moves into Phase 3, I actually felt quite safe the whole time I was there — mouth agape and all.

Dentists’ guidelines for infection control were updated as recently as three years ago, “so we already had strict protocols in place,” says Dr. Lesli Hapak, president of

The Pandemic and the Dentist

On March 16, the ADA issued the following statement:

“The American Dental Association recognizes the unprecedented and extraordinary circumstances dentists and all health care professionals face related to growing concern about COVID-19. The ADA is deeply concerned for the health and well-being of the public and the dental team. In order for dentistry to do its part to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the ADA recommends dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks. Concentrating on emergency dental care will allow us to care for our emergency patients and alleviate the burden that dental emergencies would place on hospital emergency departments.”

“As health care professionals, it is up to dentists to make well-informed decisions about their patients and practices.”

Various local dental societies have issued statements echoing these recommendations. It is unlikely that these limitations would be lifted soon.

Coronavirus has a global reach, is in over 200
