Important COVID-19 Message for Dentists

Thank you for your elevated vigilance and due diligence in ensuring that Ohioans are receiving dental services in a safe manner in view of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Out of an abundance of caution, dentists are requested to postpone elective surgery for their patients if it will not put the patient's health in danger. This will help with the following:

1. Maintain safe distances in ambulatory clinical/hospital settings.

2. Prevent the risk of inadvertent transmission of the virus.

3. Preserve inventory of supplies for critical cases.

4. Preserve hospital capacity for critical cases.


If you have any questions, please call the Ohio Department of Health's hotline at (833) 4-ASK ODH or (833) 427-5634. Additionally, please go to for updates.
