Welcome to our new weekly series with infection control and prevention expert Jackie Dorst, RDH, BS

In this episode, we look at what that first day should look like when orthodontic practices reopen. Dorst walks the orthodontic team through that first patient appointment—starting with the appointment scheduling call then through to patient arrival and treatment. She discusses the procedures and products necessary to keep both the staff and patient safe. 

In addition, Dorst talks about some of the hot topics related to practicing amid COVID-19, including air filtration needs for your office and reuse and sterilization of N95 respirator masks. OP
