Default Dentist refuses to work during the crisis

Is it malpractice if a dentist refuses to work during the covid crisis---I am saying refuses 100% to see any of his patients no matter what. Even emergencies!

It almost impossible to find an immediate substitute while your actually in pain.

No, it's not malpractice.


If it's bad enough, go to the emergency room at a hospital.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommended that all dentistry practices close for everything except emergencies.

The organization realized that the most basic routines of dentistry, from close contact with mouths to the water-spraying tools that send fluids flying, were suddenly filled with risk. Because so many coronavirus carriers lack symptoms, it is impossible to know who is safe to treat and who can safely offer that treatment.

The ADA has issued guidance for patients and dentists, but for a clinic that serves the city’s most vulnerable people, the danger is amplified. Patients are more likely to wait to get help until they are experiencing a true emergency. They’re also more likely to have other health problems that put them at a higher risk of dying of covid-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

You can call ADA (916) 263-2300 and complain If your dental doctor is not ready to treat you if your condition is serious.

And fire the guy, get a dentist with some dedication, and courage.
