Uh so my dental appointment I scheduled 6 months ago is coming up in a couple weeks, and apparently they're assuming we're proceeding as normal... (or somewhere close to normal?)

Uh... really?

Your thoughts please, this feels super weird.


@deafferret WAAAAAAYYYY too early. Dentistry is one of the most hazardous medical specialties in terms of risk of CoViD-19 transmission. Dental procedures generate a lot of aerosols which linger in the air way longer than a cough or a sneeze, and you have to sit in a room with several other previous patients' lingering aerosolized germs with your mouth wide open and no way for you to wear PPE. Not worth it right now - your cleaning can wait a few months, I assure you.
