(AP) - Nearly all U.S. dental offices will be cleaning teeth again by the end of June, but business, as usual, won’t return for a while.

Expect social distancing, layers of protective gear, and a new approach to some procedures as dentists get back to work.

An economist with the American Dental Association says only 3% of dental offices were open for non-emergency care in April.

He expects nearly all offices to be open by the end of this month.
