An overview document about how this virus impacts dentistry and the resources available from the ADA. The COVID-19 pandemic, caused by coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2 virus), has caused major disruption in the lives of dental teams in the USA. ADA and many state dental associations have urged dental offices to treat only emergency patients; some states or local governments have mandated this. The ADA continues to urge dental offices to follow closure recommendations. Safety of the dental team and patients or people accompanying patients is essential while treating emergency patients and following this crisis.
