The body that regulates dentistry in Ontario has released new guidelines for treating patients in-person that include extra precautions as the spread of COVID-19 continues to slow.
The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario says the profession is currently in Stage 2 of its three-phase reopening plan.
Dentists had previously only been allowed to practice emergency or urgent care on patients in-person, but can now offer other essential services with enhanced precautions.
