Staying Connected During COVID-19 AGD Webinar Series

COVID-19 has impacted every aspect of our lives as general dentists, including our offices, teams, families and communities, creating uncertainty and anxiety about the future. AGD has developed a series of webinars to help answer questions about the impact of the virus on general dentistry.

The pen and clipboard are no longer viable options for collecting or updating medical information about your patients. The first part of this webinar will discuss the advantages of going paperless for consent, intake and COVID-19-related questions in a secure, HIPAA-compliant manner to protect patient information and your team when interacting with patients in a socially distanced manner.
