    Covid has been going on for almost a year.

    Most dentists have been open for full services since May 1.

    Have you heard anyone get covid at the dentist?  No.

    The dentist/hygienist, like almost all healthcare practitioners will likely wear a N95 mask with a faceshield over it.  They may also wear a cotton mask.

    Well, if the office is open, then it must be safe. They have to see people all day.

    Yes. I been to the dentist a couple times since covid started. Now there are a lot of precautions being taken not just at dentist but at a lot of places so now it is a lot safer then it was before.

    For a while the dentists here were open only for emergencies, but sometime during the summer they opened for routine dental care with extra precautions taken. I missed one cleaning but got the next one on schedule, plus a crown on a tooth that needed it.
