BANGOR — After months of closure at the start of the pandemic, Maine dental offices are finally starting to hit the groove.
According to the World Health Organization, dentists were urged to stop non-emergency services at the time.
However, a Bangor dentist said more patients have been coming to their dental cleanings and check-ups.
“The volume of people going to the dentist is about 85 percent and that’s last week’s numbers. We found in Maine, people have been coming back in larger numbers, which we are pleased about,” said Dr. Brad Rand of Rand Dentistry.
Rand Dentistry has placed multiple air filtration devices and a UV light to help disinfect the air to follow the COVID-19 safety protocols.
