Did you know that it wasn’t until the early 90’s that gloves were not legally required for hygienists? It takes a pandemic for dental professionals to see the light. That time it was AIDS and today it is Covid19. The incidence of aerosol-creating procedures has only increased. Inhalation of airborne particles and aerosols produced during dental procedures may cause adverse respiratory health effects and the #1 reason dental professionals miss work is due to respiratory infections. Healthcare professionals need to reassess the “invisible” risks and combat it with infection control protocols before, during and after patient care. In 10 years it should be the goal to look back and say “how did we work in such conditions” as it shows continuous progress. Let’s take this first step in that direction.
1. Understand physical properties of aerosol and splatter
2. Understanding the health implications of not controlling aerosols and splatter
3. Existing methodology used to reduce aerosols and splatter
4. Analysis of existing methodology from a financial perspective and clinical use
