Safely Reopening Derm Practices with Dr. Jeffrey S. Dover

Join Dr. Jeffrey S. Dover, Director of SkinCare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts as he discusses how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected dermatology practices across the country and around the world.  In the face of a change that no one was really prepared for, Dr. Dover and an esteemed panel of experts from the fields of Infectious Disease, Immunology, Public Health Policy, Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, and Facial Plastic Surgery, came together to render their opinions and guidance on how to safely reopen dermatology practices across the country. This collaborative effort resulted in the publication of Project AesCert Guidance, which represents a consensus of studied principles that combines learnings from major hospital systems on the frontlines of treating COVID-19 patients¹.
