Determining and documenting the new procedures and protocols that should be followed as dentists and staff head back to work in the post-pandemic environment is no easy task.

Growing up in a small neighborhood in Trinidad, Dr Jason Warner found himself initially drawn to dentistry following his childhood orthodontic experience.

We ended the conversation by asking each of them to share a piece of advice, trusting you’ll find a tool, approach or philosophy you can implement in your own revised process and delivery of patient care.
