is it safe to go to the hospital during the coronavirus pandemic?

I need to go to the dentist but my dentist's practice is located inside a building that's part of a hospital. If I go there, I am afraid I will catch Covid-19 because the air gets recirculated throughout the building. Should I find a new dentist or is the risk of infection not major?

    With social distancing and lockdowns in place, telemedicine is playing a large role today in making healthcare accessible to everyone. Using Exotel’s Smart IVR solution for healthcare organisations, you can connect doctors and patients in real-time. Doctors can get details of the caller’s IVR inputs when they answer the call to ensure they have context. Calls can be tracked and analysed for better operation. You can even setup patient follow ups and collect payments.
