Coronavirus – the view from Spain (day 35)
Tony Gedge give us his latest update from Spain on how the coronavirus is impacting him and dental practices around the world.
Spain is currently on lockdown, with people consequently only going out to for grocery shopping or selected jobs.
Tony has therefore taken the time to update Dentistry.co.uk on the current position from Spain and give his thoughts on how dental practices should deal with the coronavirus.
Tony discusses the dentists that are formulating the British Association of Private Dentistry. Tony also suggests the CDOs look towards Germany and Sweden, where dentists are continuing to practice. He questions when dentistry will reopen.
Going forward, Tony questions what we can do during three stages:
- B – before
- D – during
- A – after.
We’re now moving past the during stage and we’re looking at the after stage. Tony questions, what’s the plan for afterwards? He says we have a six week period, 42 days, to react after lockdown shuts. He believes practices need a ‘plan ahead team’ who can proactively look at reopening.
