Dental Professionals particularly Dental hygienists are at the highest risk of exposure to COVID-19 due to how close we come to our patients and the risk of aerosols. As we move to level 2 restrictions this week, we need to consider what returning to work will look like & what steps we need to take to protect ourselves post COVID-19.

  • How is COVID-19 changing the face of the hygiene department?
  • How can OHTs and hygienists support their practice through restrictions and beyond?
