Covid-19

Coronavirus, COVID-19 Update

*The following information was obtained from the Kentucky Board of Dentistry Website*

On April 23, Gov. Beshear and Commissioner Stack announced that non-urgent and non-emergent dental care would be included in Phase I of the Healthy at Work initiative for restarting Kentucky's economy. This was followed on April 27 with a memo from the Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) modifying its previous order to postpone elective care. In response to the Phase I announcement, the Board of Dentistry, along with the Kentucky Dental Association, Kentucky Dental Hygienists' Association, State Dental Director's Office, Kentucky Oral Health Coalition, and the UK and UofL dental schools have come together to develop a reopening plan that mitigates the risks of COVID-19. Dental offices may now practice non-urgent and non-emergent care under these guidelines:

 Phase I Guidelines for Dentistry

  Phase I Summary Guidelines

 Recommended PPE Usage 

 CHFS Elective Care Memo 04/27/20  

We recognize that our published guidelines will not cover every situation a provider may face. Licensees should use their best clinical judgement to properly protect their staff, their patients, and themselves. Be aware that just because a dental practice can reopen does not necessary mean that it should. Please ensure you have the appropriate equipment, staffing, and protocols in place before returning to non-urgent and non-emergent dental care.

 How to protect yourself and stop the spread of germs

  • Sanitize your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.  If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash.  If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
  • Stay at home when you are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • You may be asked to put on a face mask to protect others.
