Today we’re pleased to share with you the Missouri COVID-19 Dental Task Force guidance document.
It was developed as a joint effort of the Office of the Missouri State Dental Director, which is within the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services and MO HealthNet Division, the Missouri Dental Association and the Missouri Primary Care Association.
The Task Force prepared these guidelines based on the best available evidence to date. These are recommendations which are voluntary in nature and should not be considered to be mandatory directives. Each dentist and dental practice should make its own decisions in good faith and in compliance with all existing laws, rules, regulations and other available guidance.
We appreciate the leadership of Dr. John Dane, our State Dental Director, who brought together the Task Force members to develop these guidelines.

We encourage every Missouri dentist to use the information in this document to help make the best decisions for their particular situation and make adjustments as indicated by changing circumstances.
