Webcast Description:

Dental aerosols are something that all dental practitioners are familiar with. But do you really know how far aerosols spread when you perform standard procedures?  In a study in a dental office, microscopic pathogens were found behind closed doors in a room where no treatment occurred.  This CE course will describe the dangers of dental aerosols to both patients and staff, detail how aerosols travel and explain a proven solution to reduce the spread.
