Indoor Masking in Dental Practice Public Spaces

The ADA released a new resource this afternoon for members to help dental practices make informed decisions and facilitate conversations about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s latest public indoor masking recommendations.

The online resource, Indoor Masking in Dental Practice Public Spaces, offers answers to questions that dentists, patients and dental team members may have, including:

  • What is the current CDC recommendation for wearing a mask indoors?
  • How should I communicate about masking in public areas in my practice to my patients?
  • What are my options as a practice owner?
The new resource also includes sample copy and scripts for printable signs, text messages, phone calls and emails that dental practices can weave into their communications. This member-only resource is available at
