COVID-19 has created an uncertain environment for the health care workforce. While some health care workers are working longer hours, others, including dental providers, are being asked to stay at home for their safety. Moreover, many health center leaders are concerned about paying “non-essential” staff given the operational and financial impact of COVID-19 response efforts. Please review this webinar held in partnership with the National Network for Oral Health Access to learn about innovative ways that health centers are engaging dental providers and other “non-essential” clinicians in health center activities during the COVID-19 crisis. Participants will also hear from health center leaders on the issues of furloughing and rehiring staff.
