The Chief Dental Officer of Canada has shared the following information with Canada’s national oral health organizations.
 
This rapid review of international sources on the Recommendations for the Re-opening of Dental Services in light of the COVID-19 Pandemic collates and summarises recommendations from the various international sources identified within five themes relevant to the re-opening of dental services: 1. practice preparation,
         2. personal protective equipment,
         3. management of the clinical area,
         4. dental procedures, and
         5. cleaning and disinfection.
 
The review is not guidance. Given that the world has only really known about COVID-19 for about 120 days, robust evidence is scarce. However, this review is intended to assist policy and decision-makers in producing national guidance for their own settings.  
Canada’s CDO is a contributor. 
 
An interesting read that may provide useful information for any discussions you may have with regulators/governments in your respective jurisdictions, as provinces begin to ease restrictions.
