Consider the Evidence:  Aerosol Generating Devices for the RDH

9 - 10:30 a.m.

In this course dental professionals will be able to consider the evidence surrounding the safe use of aerosol-generating devices amidst a worldwide pandemic. As guidelines by the CDC, and research surrounding the virus and aerosol usage continue to shift, some clinicians have questioned the safety of whether or not to incorporate aerosol-generating devices into dental hygiene procedures. Needs of the patients have not changed, but the environment in which we practice has. This course is designed to equip clinicians with evidence-based information regarding the use of power technology known to generate aerosols, as well as steps to help mitigate risks of exposures.
