DAPA has released a position statement regarding COVID-19 Vaccinations.
We believe vaccination of dental practitioners, dental assistants, receptionists, practice managers and students or trainees undertaking placement will assist in preventing the spread of COVID-19 to vulnerable patients and the general community and also protect the healthcare workers from contracting COVID-19 at work.
We are pleased to confirm that following the collective advocacy efforts of ADA, ADOHTA, DHAA, ADPA, dental technicians and others, the requirements for most dentists to register their patient-matched medical devices has been successfully removed.
The CEO of ADA, Damian Mitsch, explains what this means for you: https://youtu.be/ZGOkcHhaaQk
