The offices will be subject to state guidance for safety and social distancing, according to the state’s official webpage. The New York State Department of Health released an interim document outlining the guidelines for dentistry, including physical distancing, hygiene, steps for proper cleaning and disinfection and protective equipment, among others.
For example, patients and visitors must wear face coverings at all times, except during dental procedures, according to the guidance. If visitors do not wear face coverings, or refuse to, they can be turned away.
