11/15/20: Dental Advisory Team Issues Guidelines on Public Health Order Compliance

As we reported on Friday, the new health order does not differ very much from the language that has governed dental offices during the last six months.  Dental offices provide essential services and should continue to be open during the shelter-at-home order. The order also, however, does not mean business as usual.  The public health order relies on professionals, like us, to make the right call. So, the Dental Advisory Team has issued guidelines on compliance with the latest public health order PLEASE CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD AND READ THE PDF.

11/13/20: Governor Issues Shelter-In-Place Public Health Orders

On Friday, November 13th, Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham announced new shelter in place public health orders closing in-person services for all non-essential activities. Per her directive, "essential businesses," including what the State defines as "emergency dental facilities," may operate during the next two weeks if they reduce their operations and in-person workforce to the greatest extent possible. 

The language of the public health order remains essentially the same as it has for the last 8 months.  We interpret these orders to mean dental offices may remain open.  But to the extent possible, using the discretion and professional judgement of the dentist, reduce operations and staff where they can during this 2 week period. Read the entire order HERE.

The New Mexico Dental Association is in dialog with the administration to gain further clarification of this order and will provide additional advice as it becomes available.

Enchantment North Postponed, Will Be Part of Eastern Dental Meeting Series

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Enchantment North meeting has to be cancelled for October 9-10.  We are pleased to announce that this program will be combined with the planned Eastern Dental Meeting program and will be scheduled as a series of CE courses in January, February and March 2021.  All the speakers that were scheduled for Enchantment North will be included in this program as well as the courses already planned for the Eastern Dental Meeting.  That means more CE for the same low registration fee.  All courses will be offered as live presentations on their scheduled dates and then be available as recorded self-study courses for 3 additional months.  Please plan to join us for the combined Enchantment North-Eastern Dental Meeting series during the Winter and Spring of 2021.
