Dental Practice Insights

The Massachusetts Dental Society (MDS) Dental Practice and Benefits Committee believes dental professionals can play a key role in instilling confidence in your patients to trust the safety and efficacy of vaccines. Talking with your patients about vaccines can be an important first step. To help you with these conversations, the American Dental Association (ADA) has made its COVID-19 Vaccine Communication Toolkit available in both English and Spanish. The toolkit includes:
  • Talking points and tips for effectively communicating with your patients about the vaccine
  • What you can and cannot say about your staff’s vaccination status
  • Fact sheets for patients to take home
  • Responses to frequently asked questions you can use in conversations with patients in person, online, or during phone calls
  • Email drafts for reaching out to patients
  • Signs for your office
  • Sample social media posts
  • Additional resources from the ADA, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other health organizations
As a reminder, patients and staff must continue to wear masks in all health care settings in Massachusetts regardless of vaccination status.
