Your Action is Needed: Urge your legislators to include dentistry in any COVID-19 relief packages On March 20, 2020, Governor Brown issued an Executive Order, mandating dental offices state-wide cease all elective and non-urgent procedures. We know this action will have a significant impact on dentists throughout the state. As the State develops a response to COVID-19, the Oregon Dental Association is working to advocate for dentists urging legislators to include dentistry in any COVID-19 relief packages. We need your help in advocating for all Oregon dentists- please write your legislators today. Take Action Here!
Governor Kate Brown has issued an Executive Order No. 20-10 that requires Oregon dentists (along with other providers) to cease non-urgent care for their patients until June 15th.
