What happens now if the dentist is afraid to work due to the China Virus?

What can I do. Can I force the dentist to treat me, legally?
I can't find anybody else?

You can go away and start your own thread if you have a legal question.

Can't force him/her.
Find another or call your local health dept or medical service for doctors that are taking emergencies. See if his office has a recommendation.

People in a wide variety of careers are being impacted by concerns over the coronavirus, and local dentists are taking unprecedented steps to keep their patients safe. Dentists across the country are closing their practices because of the virus, and the reason why is easy to understand. Dentists are probably one of the highest-risk professions. Most of the dentists closed their practice after receiving guidance from the Illinois State Dental Society and the American Dental Association. Dentists are being urged to postpone elective procedures for the next three weeks to mitigate the spread of the virus. Some emergency procedures are still allowed, including when patients are dealing with swelling or pain, but most procedures are being put on hold.
