A recent NBC article outlines the results of a survey from the American Dental Association on COVID-19 infection rates among dentists. The researchers found that in June just 0.9% of dentists surveyed had confirmed or probable cases of COVID-19. This is despite early fears that aerosol transmission in dental offices would be a large transmission factor in dental offices. The survey also noted that dental offices were largely (99.7%) using enhanced infection control procedures on top of standard procedure in order to be proactive.
