Last week was one of the most emotional and chaotic of our dental careers. In these uncertain times, we need answers and guidance from leaders in the dental profession and industry. Here are some important links that you will find helpful.

The DentistryIQ COVID-19 Resource Center is quickly being populated with the best available information from the extended Dental Economics family of authors and key opinion leaders. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz, DMD, will be regularly interviewing experts and I urge you to check the Resource Center as we will be continuously updating it. The first two interviews are included in this issue of Principles of Practice Management, so you can start watching now! We’ll also be sharing these resources on our Principles of Practice Management Private Facebook Group so we can have active conversations about all of this.

The ADA Coronavirus Resource Center for Dentists will keep you up to date on their official guidelines, legislative initiatives, and other resources for your practices.

Several dental manufacturers and distribution companies are creating hubs for information that may not be covered elsewhere. Henry Schein’s Coronavirus Resource Center is one good example.

We are committed to helping you weather this storm. I hope you find these trusted resources helpful as we get answers and make decisions.

Wishing you, your families, and your patients all the best,
