I went back in November to get my teeth cleaned and didn’t feel much unease. Most dentists have their staff using N95s and face shields, and most dental offices are distanced anyway due to the nature of how the dental chairs are spaced anyway. If you feel uneasy, I would inquire and see what PPE/precautions the office is using, and decide from there.

Dentist would be a medical provider- ask if the dentist and their staff are vaccinated. If so, they are less likely to have it and/or pass it to you.

Everyone at my dentist’s office has been vaccinated. Check with them before you go.

Try to schedule your appointment for early in the morning before multiple patients see them.

Brush twice a day, remember to floss

For anyone who’s started at a company fully remote (Covid or otherwise)… when ramping into your new role, what did you do to feel more connected to your team/sales dept? I’m finding that I have questions that I don’t know how or whom to ask, I don’t know who anyone is and my manager can be MIA. This is my first fully remote role and it’s thrown me for a bit of a loop

So, a spot I made (concept to completion) got shelved due to COVID forcing the client’s marketing plan to change. During that time, my partner and I were laid off. Recently, the spot aired, but the agency credits a different team for the work – me, my parter, and my CDs aren’t listed. Do I ask the agency to correct it? Just throw it in my book with explanation? Just take the L and chalk it up to that being how the industry is?
