“Dear PoPville,

I work in a dental office where we work only inches away from a person mouth putting us at highest risk. Yet there has been no instruction on what dental offices should do other than a statement from the american dental association saying it recommends we should only do elective procedures. This would still be up the dentist’s discretion and I am afraid they won’t follow through. We don’t have the proper PPE to treat patients and it seems as though we have been forgotten about. Just thought it might be worth bringing to the public’s attention. I would just like to add that most dental offices don’t provide sick leave and we can’t telework so we wouldn’t get paid which is also an added stress that impacts the decision to stay open. It’s a difficult situation all around.”
