The progression of COVID-19 in our communities is creating enormous uncertainty, especially for general dentists. Sustaining your practices, worrying about supply shortages, adjusting procedures to ensure safety precautions and avoiding potential exposures while dealing with the economic effects and your employees' needs is tougher than anything we've ever experienced.

AGD has updated our COVID-19 resources to provide you with support during this crisis. Check back regularly for updates.
