“Dentists have been on the frontlines throughout the pandemic by keeping people with dental problems out of emergency rooms,” the ODA said.

The dental group said due to the nature of their work, dentists are at direct risk of contracting the coronavirus and should be on the priority list of health-care professionals to be vaccinated early.

  1. Ronald Paluch says:

    Dentists and staff work in an environment where aerosols are frequently
    produced during treatment. It makes sense that they should be considered among front line workers and receive early Covid-19 vaccinations. Dentists should also be able to administer vaccinations as well as pharmacists.
