The February 2022 issue of the Journal of the California Dental Association features articles on how dentistry has responded and adapted to the “new normal” of living and practicing with COVID-19, with the expectation that SARS-CoV-2 will eventually become endemic.
Articles discuss living and practicing with COVID-19; reasonable infection control practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the dental practice; and the many ways the dental profession was and still is affected by the pandemic. An article by California State Dental Director Jayanth Kumar, DDS, MPH, covers the health and procedural information dental practitioners must use to update their practices regularly.
Dentists can earn .5 units of core continuing education by reading the article “Safe Dental Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic” and successfully completing a 10-question test online.
