Our new normal has us questioning how to protect ourselves, our team and our patients? What recommendation should we follow? What mask should we wear? What products should we use? When will guidelines change again? Clinicians may be fearful now of a career they know and love. Anxiety may be through the roof, but providing quality care and saving a life through improved oral health still draws us to our passion.
