Our recommendations for additional procedures for protecting dental staff are as follows: 1. Check patient temperature as part of check-in; 2. Use coverall suit, goggles, KN95 or surgical masks, and face shield to protect staff during the procedures; 3. Use aerosol vacuum station to suck away aerosol during the procedures; 4. Disinfect routinely between patients.”
