  Posted by: The Probe      21st October 2020

The Faculty of General Dental Practice UK and College of General Dentistry have published an updated synopsis of their guidance on the implications of Covid-19 for the safe management of general dental practice.

The synopsis highlights key recommendations at each step of the patient journey, and supports dental professionals to take a risk-based approach to providing safe care regardless of the national Covid-19 threat level.

The new version reflects the recently-revised guidance, which includes updated and additional recommendations on fallow periods, air ventilation, the 3 in 1 syringe, dental headpieces, air cleaners, decontamination, the protection of vulnerable staff, and the relevance of the R number and prevalence rate.

It is available at https://www.fgdp.org.uk/implications-covid-19-safe-management-general-dental-practice-practical-guide and https://cgdent.uk/standards-guidance.

Production of the synopsis has been supported by Sensodyne.
