A Message to All Dentists in Ontario – COVID-19 Pandemic

March 16, 2020
by The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario

In accordance with our mandate to act in the public’s interest and in hearing the numerous comments made to us by members, in consultation with hospitals and public health and others, we are offering to the membership the following measures and guidelines in response to the COVID–19 pandemic.

1. The RCDSO strongly recommends that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended immediately. Emergency treatment should continue.

The College will revisit this recommendation in the first week of April.
