After its emergence in December 2019, COVID-19 has grown to pandemic proportions with over 7.4 million cases in over 200 countries confirmed as of mid-June 2020. The outbreak is causing significant disruption to dental practice worldwide. Oral health professionals, dental associations and regulatory bodies are facing diverse challenges to continue providing dental care and promoting the oral health of the population, while at the same time protecting patients and practitioners from the health threat posed by SARS-CoV-2. Speakers from 4 continents will present how the practice of dentistry in their countries evolved throughout the COVID-19 pandemic from both the practitioners and the patients points of view. Participants will be invited to discuss with the panel members during a 30 minutes Q&A session Learning objectives:
  • Understand the different regulations and guidance relevant to dentistry that have been put in place in several countries.
  • Understand the other issues relevant to dental practice experienced in those countries (e.g. PPE supply, reorganization of care provision/patient intake)
  • Understand the impact these measures and issues have had on dental practice (e.g. challenges posed to practitioners and how they’ve been overcome, if at all)
