At this time, the highest priority for the AGD is to engage with state agencies regarding the allocation of PPE as states consider the reopening of dental offices. Recent FEMA guidance suggests that there is no strategy for the provision of PPE that will be necessary for dental practices to reopen. To that end, we are asking that you follow the link below to easily send a letter to your state emergency management agency, communicating to them the critical need for dentists to be actively involved in the development and implementation of PPE allocation policies as they consider reopening dental offices.
If you or anyone you know in your constituent has a specific contact at your state agency, please reach out to them individually to make the ask, and share any response with the AGD.
Your help is greatly appreciated, and please let us know if you have any questions.
