*UPDATED!* Governor’s Plan for Florida’s Recovery

Elective Procedures May Resume on May 4

Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his plan for Florida’s recovery, which will allow for elective procedures to resume in a hospital ambulatory surgical center, office surgery center, dental office, orthodontic office, endodontic office or other health care practitioners’ office on Monday, May 4 statewide.

The governor issued Executive Order 20-112, which outlines protocols that need to be met in order to restart elective procedures. This executive order supersedes the conflicting provisions of Executive Order 20-72.

As indicated in the Advisory Memorandum on Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers during COVID-19 Response, dentists are identified as “essential” critical infrastructure workers (see page 5).

Please find a list of FAQs for Executive Order 20-112.

Reopening Guidance

The American Dental Association has released new guidance on reopening dental practices in the form of a toolkit that was developed based on the work of the ADA’s Advisory Task Force on Dental Practice Recovery co-chaired by FDA President Dr. Rudy Liddell. This toolkit is focused on the short-term management of dental practices during the COVID-19 pandemic as providers return to non-emergent care and includes resources such as staff protection strategies, a chairside checklist for working in the operatory, a customizable letter to patients, guidance for pre-appointment screening, in-office patient registration, post-procedure patient exit and much more.

For more information please visit the FDA's COVID-19 webpage.The ​Florida Dental Association is working to be a go-to source for members and will regularly update its COVID-19 webpage and other resources to ensure they’re as current as possible in this rapidly changing environment.
