Vaccines are another layer of protection against the coronavirus, one that supports the safety protocols your members and their dental teams are already following. Research also indicates that people hesitant about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine may become more confident after discussing it with healthcare professionals they know and trust. The trust dentists have earned from their patients can play a critical role in helping to reduce vaccine hesitancy.
The ADA has developed resources to help dentists and their teams educate patients about how the vaccine works, answer questions, correct misinformation and connect them to local vaccination sites. ADA/VDA members can access the toolkit here
