According to the ADA, Level 2 restrictions are those which are “unlikely to generate aerosols or where aerosols generated have the presence of minimal saliva/blood due to the use of rubber dam.” This includes things like:
- Simple non-invasive fillings without the use of high-speed
- Restorative procedures using high-speed handpieces only
provided with the use of rubber dam
- Non-surgical extractions
- Denture procedures
- Preventative procedures such as the application of topical
remineralising agents e.g. fluoride

Waiting Lists to Streamline Future Appointments
We realise that while this is a small step towards things going back to “normal”, there are still many procedures that are restricted. Throughout our support for dental practices, we’ve helped businesses develop a concept of waiting lists to help them streamline future appointments.

The Power of the Pop-Up – Simple Website Announcements to Make Sure Patients Turn Up
We’ve found that having a simple message on your website regarding the procedures your practice is following for COVID-19 helps to keep patients informed. This, we’ve found in our experience has been very effective over the last few weeks this has been. See an example of this type of announcement here.
In a year of ups and downs, we are proud to deliver some great news for dentists and patients who will soon be able to deliver and receive important dental services.
Now is a great time to encourage patients to use the COVID-19 slow-down to get up-to-date with their dental plan or get started on more time-intensive treatments they’ve been interested in for a while.
Right now, it’s not only important to get back to work, it is a crucial time for dentists to get in contact with their patients to be really clear about how COVID-19 restrictions are affecting your business operations.
