ADA Releases Toolkit With Guidance For Providing COVID-19 Testing In Dental Practices

ADA task force assembles interim guidance toolkit for dentists returning to work
The ADA News (10/12, Versaci) reports that the ADA, in consultation with its Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery, has released the COVID-19 & Lab Testing Requirements Toolkit “to help guide dentists interested in offering their patients rapid response, point-of-care COVID-19 testing within their practices.” The toolkit includes information on applying for the federal certification required to offer COVID-19 testing. “While rapid point-of-care testing is not widely used currently, as the technology and access to these important tests improve, this comprehensive document will enable members who want to do testing in their office to be sure they are compliant with all regulatory guidelines,” said Dr. Tom Paumier, task force member.
