Regarding the improvement of dental service quality, the Dental Hospital, Phayathai Campus, and the Maha Chakri Sirinthorn Dental Hospital, Salaya Campus, Nakorn Pathom Province, are the first essential targets for the faculty. The improvement is aimed to prepare the hospitals for the patient services during the COVID-19 situation by reorganizing the dental personnel’s sections or units to effectively take standard precautions. Moreover, more medical supplies for dental works, including PPE suits, will be provided for the hospitals to ensure the patient safety in the dental services. With the good preparation, dental personnel and supportive staff will definitely reach the standards on the prevention of COVID-19 infection and the effective control over the current COVID-19 situation.
