An Important Message From the TN Board of Dentistry about COVID-19 below.
On behalf of the Tennessee Board of Dentistry, we would like you to know our hearts go out to you and how much we appreciate what every single one of you is doing to contribute to our fight against the worst pandemic that our generation has ever faced. We are aware this is a time of high anxiety for all of our licensees and all of us, on so many levels, are working to help “flatten the curve,” and as a board, we are sending our utmost care and concern during the uncertainty of this crisis.
You are facing difficult situations and we want to alleviate what stress we can for you at this time. For licensees who receive a letter from the board notifying them that they are being audited for the 2019-2020 continuing education cycle we will waive your requirement upon receipt of a written request stating that Covid-19 made it beyond your physical capabilities to be compliant.
We encourage any other inquiries regarding continuing education/CPR requirements be sent through email to email@example.com as response time may be faster.
Also, we ask that you review the Governor’s Executive Order regarding the restriction of all non-emergency dental or oral procedures. https://publications.tnsosfiles.com/pub/execorders/exec-orders-lee18.pdf
The intent of Executive Order 18 is to protect the dentist, staff, patients and the community from the transmission of COVID-19 and prevent the unnecessary use of the PPE resources that are in extremely short supply, especially N95 masks.
You are strongly encouraged to provide necessary personal protective equipment in your possession not required for the emergency care exempted in the Order, including, but not limited to, medical gowns, N95 masks, surgical masks, TYVEK suits, boot covers, gloves, and/or eye protection to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency by delivering such equipment to the nearest open Tennessee National Guard Armory listed on the TEMA website (www.tn.gov/tema) between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Again, thank you and we will get through this together.
From the bottom of our hearts,
