Dentistry Post Covid

The future of dentistry remains unclear as dentist visits drop over 50% worldwide.

What has changed in dentistry?

Post COVID-19, dentists must embrace new, safer ways to engage with their customers. Currently dentists must wear extensive PPE and even use oral dams on patients while performing standard procedures. These measures are taken to protect both the patient and the dentist.

How can dental practices survive?

  1. Engage with your patients on social media
  2. Use software, like Chairsyde, to streamline the company
  3. Increase the amount of PPE used
  4. Send email invitations to visit your clinic mentioning PPE
  5. Take payment and signatures online to limit clinic time
  6. Educate dentists and staff on how to communicate to patients
