We are in the midst of an historic event. Our grandchildren and great grandchildren will learn about the coronavirus pandemic in school. When they ask us about it, we can share with them the impact the virus had on our personal lives, our livelihood, mandatory lock downs, self-isolation, social distancing, and the toilet paper shortage. We can also share with them how the dental industry rose to this unprecedented challenge.
Right now, there is a plethora of information regarding the COVID-19 crisis as it relates to the dental industry and it can be almost as overwhelming as the crisis itself. In order to try and cut through the clutter, constant updates and promotional garbage that is out there, Group Dentistry Now has compiled a list of vetted resources that you and your DSO can use to try and navigate this unprecedented time.
We will be updating this COVID-19 Dental Support Organization (DSO) Response Guide as needed. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have found resources that have proven useful during this time.
We wish everyone health and safety during these times, a quick recovery for people who contract the coronavirus and our businesses and employees that have been effected by this pandemic.
We are in this together.
Many of the resources below are being constantly updated, so make sure you check back often as this crisis seems to be evolving by the hour. Updated 6.4.20
