Success in 7 Minutes: Are your COVID-19 protocols still in place?

Aug. 11, 2021
At this point in the COVID-19 pandemic, have you made modifications in your infection control protocols? Here's an insider view of what two dentists are doing in their practices to keep everyone safe.

So, the coronavirus is still a thing, and now we’re hearing the buzz about new variants. Are you doing the same thing you’ve been doing in your dental offices, or have you modified your infection control protocols?

In this episode of Success in 7 Minutes, Dr. Howard Glazer and I discuss what we’re each doing in our practices to continue to keep our patients and teams safe from COVID-19. As Dr. Glazer says, “One of the roles of a doctor is to educate. We have a responsibility to discuss the science of why we need the vaccine.”

What are you doing in your practice regarding PPE, patient education, and other infection control precautions during this time? If you have unique ideas or anecdotes to share, please send them our way. And reach out to us with any questions you have. We’re here to support you!
