HARLINGEN, Texas (KVEO) — The World Health Organization is urging dentist offices to close just as other businesses have as a result of the pandemic.
WHO advises that non-essential oral health care stop until COVID-19 cases decline to avoid the spread of the virus.
“We’ve stepped up… cleaning more frequently and less patients waiting,” said Dr. David.
He’s a retired dentist from Raymondville and said offices across the Valley are taking precaution.
“Dentistry is essential healthcare you can’t close up [the] shop,” he said.
