Many in the dental community have been affected by COVID-19 and want to share their stories.

As a result, the ADA is launching the JADA+ COVID-19 Monograph—a digital collection of stories, reflections, and accounts from any perspective, in any format, including articles, essays, podcasts, videos, graphics, and photos—that is open to all contributors. Submit your COVID-19 story here.

One Year into the Global Pandemic as a Result of COVID-19, We Are Still Standing – Dr. Vanchit John


One year after we went into our lockdown mode we continue to adjust and adapt to our clinical reality of increased use of PPE, careful patient scheduling, physical distancing, new protocols for patient care, all designed to continue to provide our patients with the treatment they need. Along the way, we have also managed to successfully graduate one class of students and residents in 2020 and are getting ready for our second "pandemic graduation".

The daily realities of clinical life have us feeling like an Astronaut one day to feeling like Darth Vader the next!
