Getting your teeth cleaned is going to look different next time you make a dental appointment. Dentists reopening in Ontario have new rules to adhere to in order to maintain a safe environment for both workers and patients. Some protocols will even include installing floor-to-ceiling walls as barriers and wearing facemasks.

Last week, the Ontario government announced that dentists could reopen as long as they follow proper safety protocol.

Now, The Royal College For Dental Surgeons In Ontario (RCDSO) has outlined a list of requirements that dental practices must follow during the reopening across the province.

In addition to wearing PPE such as masks and gloves while in the office, all patients must be screened for COVID-19 before entering the building.
