COVID 19 – New Business Practices

Let us face it, the way dentistry is practiced in the future has changed, and dentists are facing a new situation (COVID-19) that they did not envision and have not received any business training on how to manage such challenge that caused a very lengthy closure of their dental practices.

Keating Dental Arts has compiled the following information and resources to support your business operation needs.

Good Hygiene Practices

Keating Dental Arts encourages the implementation of a few simple preventative measures to limit the spread of COVID-19:

  • Promote the daily practice of everyday preventive actions. Practice daily good health habits to prevent the spread of any virus. Please review the Center for Disease Control (CDC) recommendations for everyday preventive actions.
  • We are discouraging individuals who are sick, who have been exposed to the virus, or who have traveled to and from an affected area from attending events and to leave events if they begin to have symptoms. If you have symptoms of a virus, which could include fever, cough, and shortness of breath, you are discouraged from attending the event and encouraged to follow CDC guidelines.  If you become sick at the event, please promptly follow CDC guidelines and notify event organizer by email or phone.  See CDC guidance on what to do when sick.

“I have tried face shields from many sources in the attempt to find the best PPEs for our reopening. To my dismay, most face shields either interfere with my precision dentistry or cause too much strain on my head until I tried the Keating face shields. The Keating face shield is 3D printed that provides comfort, safety, and clarity. Its light weight affords all day wear without discomfort. The replaceable plastic insert is super clear, and easy to clean and disinfect for multiple uses. Two layered head bands allow for eyeglasses use without fogging. I greatly appreciate Keating Lab’s effort in providing much needed PPEs for its dentist customers.”
