At the end of last week, Governor Scott and the Vermont Department of Health authorized dental practices to start accepting non-emergency patients for the first time since the COVID-19 emergency began. Because of its aerosol generating procedures and the creation of droplets when performing work in mouths, dentistry has been particularly hard hit by this pandemic. Here we discuss some of the options available for remote work.

This episode features Dr. Rachel Rivard, Dental Director at Community Health in Rutland, and Dr. Joe Errante, Vice President for Network and Clinical Strategies at Northeast Delta Dental. Thank you to Northern Counties Health Care for sponsoring this special series on telehealth.

A few additional resources on this topic, taken from the Bi-State guide to telehealth implementation during COVID-19
