RCDSO Update - March 26, 2020 (COVID-19)

Since our advice to dentists released March 15, the Government of Ontario has declared a State of Emergency. The government has also clarified that only “health care professionals providing emergency care including dentists” are considered to be in the category of ‘essential services’.

As a result, the College will not revisit its strong recommendation that all non-essential and elective dental services should be suspended until the State of Emergency has been lifted by the Government of Ontario.
