Times have changed in ways that none of us had imagined. Covid-19 or Corona, as it is popularly known, has dominated the conversation world over as this global epidemic has spread to many countries.

Although medical services are part of essential services that need to remain open during the lockdown, dental clinics have been asked to stay shut. A large number of health professionals are making sure that you and your loved ones stay safe and healthy.

You may be wondering why this has happened. Why can’t you get urgent care for dental pain during these times? You may be thinking: is there a dentist’s clinic open near me or near my house?

The Covid-19 virus or the Coronavirus, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), can spread through the medium of one infected person to another, in case someone touches a surface there the virus particles may have been.

It can also spread if an infected person coughs or sneezes close to another person. This can cause more people to contract this virus. That is why a lockdown has been imposed in the country. That is why you have been requested to wear a mask and stay 6 feet away from others when you’re out for essential purchases or services.

Therefore, if you go to a dentist during this time, you may end up spreading these germs to your dentist, his or her staff members or even to the other patients in the waiting room.

Along with this, if you go see the dentist, there is a chance that you may touch various surfaces at the dental clinic, such as the waiting room sofa, the dental chair, door handles and instruments.

This is the main reason your nearby dentist and the professionals working at the dental clinic stand a higher chance of contracting Covid-19 or the Coronavirus. That’s why you may not be able to go visit the dentist for some time, at least till it becomes safe for dental clinics to open again. In fact, it’s a good idea to practice ‘social distancing’ from your dentist at this time.
