UPDATE: The Georgia Board of Dentistry has issued an amended statement regarding the threat of COVID-19:
We recommend that CDC and health department guidelines be strictly adhered to regarding patient care. Please review those guidelines ON A DAILY BASIS as they will be changing as the situation evolves.
Many dental associations, including the American Dental Association, are making recommendations that dentists voluntarily suspend all elective, non-urgent or non-emergency dental care for a period of time ranging from two or more weeks.
The decision of whether a particular procedure may be necessary for a patient should be made on a case-by-case basis by the treating dentist based on his or her professional judgment. Generally, elective procedures are those that are beneficial but not essential.
