Event Details

COVID-19 has affected us all. There was no getting away from it in 2020 and it is going to be with us for some time to come. Explore the implications of lockdown on patients’ presenting concerns and how we can take this experience into our future practice. We will also discuss the vaccines available in Australia plus speculation around how our practice may be affected in the future with the vaccine being present.

You will learn:

  • How to apply the lockdown dentistry lessons to everyday dental life
  • How the vaccine may impact dental practice
  • How to triage patients in a busy practice post-lockdown.
