On 22 April 2020, the Dental Board of Australia (DBA) released a new update for dental practitioners regarding COVID-19.

The update outlines the work of the DBA and Ahpra to adapt their regulatory requirements in response to emergency health service needs and to support health service delivery during the COVID-19 pandemic, while continuing to ensure public safety.

These include flexible approaches to support practitioners meeting regulatory requirements, such as the continuing professional development standard, and to help mitigate disruption to clinical placements, exams and training programs.

More details are available on the DBA website.
