Enhanced surveillance in dental settings


As part of the Enhanced Surveillance of COVID-19 in Scotland (ESoCiS) programme, we are developing a workstream to include COVID-19 testing in dental settings across Scotland.

This workstream aims to contribute to improving our understanding of COVID-19 infection in the asymptomatic population in Scotland.

In a sample of dental clinics from all health boards, the dental clinical team will undertake swab testing of their patients attending for dental care.
