There are more COVID-19 cases than ever before - more than twice as many cases in the U.S. than at any point in the pandemic, and many experts believe we are not yet at the Omicron peak. The volume of cases is bound to impact you, your staff and your practice. The pandemic has taught us that adaptation is key in managing in a pandemic. What will be your next adaptation? How will you respond to today's pandemic wave?

In this one-hour webinar three experts will look at Omicron and its potential to impact your practice. Dr. Margaret Scarlett, an infectious disease expert, will examine how Omicron is different and make recommendations to minimize the risk to you, your staff and your patients. Stuart Oberman, a dental legal expert, will examine all the legal implications including employment law considerations. Dental practice management consultant Larry Guzzardo will provide tips for successfully navigating the impact the spike in cases will have on scheduling, including patient cancellations and staffing shortages.

In a pandemic knowledge is power. This webinar will help you evaluate risk and emerge with a successful prevention strategy that will help you thrive despite all the pandemic challenges. Please join us.
