Weekly Safe Return to BUMC Update: July 9


The Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine resumed in-person patient care on Monday, July 6, at its Patient Treatment Centers at 635 Albany Street and 930 Commonwealth Avenue. The reopening was a true celebration, as faculty, staff, students, residents, and patients were welcomed back with festive balloons and “Welcome Back!” signage. The resumption of in-person patient care marked the first day that students and residents were seeing patients in the School’s brand new patient treatment spaces, which were completed in late February just prior to the shutdown. The Patient Treatment Centers will be operating at 30 percent capacity overall (although exact capacity will vary from department to department) in this first phase of a planned four-phase reopening. The School will be seeing patients with emergent, urgent and elective conditions, although it will be prioritizing those patients with the most urgent needs. Dean Hutter has established a GSDM COVID-19 Compliance Working Group to evaluate and provide recommendations for progression from one phase to the next phase of capacity.
