The use of respirators in the dental office requires OSHA compliance
As we move into the deceleration outbreak phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, many dental offices are implementing the use of N95 masks or respirators for employee protection. While the use of N95s is recommended by the CDC and OSHA when treating a COVID-19 positive or suspected positive patient, practitioners are instituting the use of N95s for the entire workday due to the potential of exposure through aerosols in the dental office.
