The Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) and the College of General Dentistry have convened an expert task force to review the evidence base for dental practice during the Covid-19 outbreak and have published the document ‘Implications of Covid-19 for the safe management of general dental practice: A practical guide.’

The guidance support dental professionals to take a risk and evidence-based approach to providing care in the current circumstances and allows the flexibility of setting minimum requirements whatever the national Covid-19 threat level. 

In line with other FGDP(UK) Guidance and Standards publications, the guidance adopts the ABC (Aspirational, Basic, Conditional) approach to measures with ‘basic’ measures being a minimum standard.

The guidance is divided into five sections – four of which reflect the patient journey and the fifth concerns general management of the practice. These sections are assigned a risk status and ABC based risk mitigation measures to ensure safe practice. The guidance is available here.
