The Safety Protocols for Dental Practices & Dentists

Reading Time : 3 mins

The COVID-19 virus has been spreading, and its impact has now reached a global level. During this Coronavirus emergency, the question of biosafety has become a major priority in all dental practices.

Meanwhile, as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread, we have a heightened awareness at our BPK Tech of our responsibility to our communities. We have three priorities guiding our decisions during this time of uncertainty: to keep our employees safe, to ensure service to our customers, and to do our part in preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

We have implemented comprehensive plans to ensure:
  1. The health and safety of our employees and
  2. our ability to continue to support our customers.

As part of those plans, we are advising our BPK Techies to conduct meetings virtually, and to pause non-essential travel. BPK Tech has always held, and continues to hold our customer commitments as our highest priority, and we are committed to doing our part to prevent the spread of the coronavirus while managing the balance between continuing to serve our customers and ensuring the continued safety and well-being of our employees.

We thank our customers for their patience and supporting us. We also applaud our heroic employees for their dedication under extraordinary circumstances.

Measures to be taken by Providers and Practice Owners to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus:

Dentists are highly vulnerable to coronavirus as they may interact with infected individuals (unfortunately); their health is an important factor in avoiding the spread of the coronavirus. The Coronavirus spreads mainly among those who have been in close contact with another person (within about 6 feet), and through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets can land in the mouth or nose of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

There is an alarming need for coronavirus precaution for all doctors, healthcare professionals, and facilities. But, how can dentists prevent the spread of coronavirus? How can dentists save themselves? What are the measures they must take to save themselves?

At this crucial point of time, TELEDENTISTRY will be the only way patients can be seen by their dentists. This will be helpful in preventing the spread of the coronavirus. With simple tools like smartphones and laptop webcams, dentists can see the most vulnerable dental patients safely thereby, eliminating their risk of infection. Teledentistry software can minimize the need for physical interaction in healthcare environments.
