We published our guidance to support the return to practice after the pandemic on 1 June 2020, and have most recently updated it on 2 October.

The Guidance

Implications of COVID-19 for the safe management of general dental practice: a practical guide


A synopsis (download below) has also been published, with support from Sensodyne, which highlights key recommendations at each step of the patient journey. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the guidance, which supports dental professionals to take a risk-based approach to providing safe care, whatever the national COVID-19 threat level

Mental wellbeing

Psychological advice for dental teams during the pandemic, developed in conjunction with the British Psychological Society Division of Health Psychology, was published in December 2020 as an adjunct to the guidance, and can be downloaded here.
