FWIW I have been to the dentist, and with mine they did a screening at the door and had each person coming in use hand sanitizer as well as being masked. As soon as I was in the treatment room they gave me a particular mouth wash to swish with for 30 seconds, that apparently is good at killing the virus. The staff had on both masks and face shields and were taking extra sterilization steps. Overall it felt pretty safe. I suppose nothing is perfectly safe, but neither is leaving problems untreated, so personally I'd say go.12/30/2020 Day 91: Now that I have my medicine I'm feeling much better. Physically at least I don't have anymore mouth pain but emotionally I'm worried and frustrated cause now mom says I shouldn't go to the dentist until the covid situation goes away but I know that won't be for several months and as soon as I finish this round of antibiotics the infection and pain will just keep coming back.
The doctor came today and said it looks like I'm all healed and doing great from the surgery. I asked him what the best thing to do is with the dental situation and he said I should go ahead and go and that the dentist's office is probably the safest place you could get covid-wise and that he'd recently had dental work done himself. After he left mom said she didn't believe that. I forgot to tell the doctor about my knee hurting and popping and how I think I need an increase in my Effexor dose.
