Fear and misinformation hurts! Delaying Your Next Dental Visit May Cost You More than Necessary. Did you know? Not a single COVID case has stemmed from a dental visit to date!
Despite these potential risks, the good news is that both the World Health Organization and the CDC say there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 transmitted in a dental office so far. And that includes follow-up by the CDC of news reports suggesting such infections.
