BAOS President Paul Coulthard said: ‘After a careful telephone patient triage by a senior clinician, the clinical team undertaking examination and treatment should be prepared. Oral Surgery procedures generate Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGP) and splatter in close proximity to the upper airway and face of the oral surgeon and team. It is important that staff are protected with PPE so that they stop the transmission of COVID-19 to other patients.’
