PDF: COVID-19 in Dental Care Settings

Reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission requires a comprehensive approach, and this document provides decision makers with considerations regarding dental settings through the framework of the hierarchy of controls. 

Dental care provision involves treatment of patients at close range, often with procedures that generate aerosols, necessitating use of personal protective equipment (PPE). 

A point of care risk assessment (PCRA) is completed by the healthcare worker before every patient interaction to determine the risk of being exposed to an infection. A PCRA helps determine the appropriate PPE for protecting the healthcare worker in their interaction with the patient and patient environment.
