Chief Dental Officer England, Sara Hurley has issued an update following the Prime Minister and Chief Medical Officer update to the nation on the Omicron variant.
"Yesterday evening the Prime Minister and Chief Medical Officer updated the nation on the Omicron variant. Dental practices should continue to see patients in line with our infection prevention control guidelines , with the standard operating procedure helping you implement them in practice.
