UAE dentists back in business after coronavirus closures

Doctors say dental treatment is safe under proper guidelines as restrictions are eased

Abu Dhabi: With an easing of restrictions, dental care is now available to patients in the UAE. For many putting off treatment since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, this is welcome news.

To reassure patients and keep them safe, dental clinics are adopting a series of recommended guidelines, including sanitation measures, limits on waiting time and crowds, and screenings for both patients and staff.

“All kinds of major dental treatments could be administered effectively, as long as certain guidelines are followed. Most clinics have laid them down, including calling all patients on the day of the appointment and checking if they are suffering from any symptoms,” said Dr Shrey Pandya, clinical director and specialist oral and maxillofacial surgeon at VPS Tajmeel Dental Centre in Karama, Abu Dhabi.
