Mitigation Strategies for the Prevention of COVID-19 in Dentistry

Educational Objectives

After completing this webinar, participants will be able to:
• Discuss transmission routes of airborne transmitted diseases.
• Identify aerosol generating procedures in the dental setting.
• Discuss mitigation strategies to reduce the risk of transmission of airborne pathogens in dentistry.

Abstract

While COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person to person via respiratory droplets, SARS-CoV-2 may also be spread via airborne transmission including aerosols. Aerosols are microscopic droplets that remain floating in the air for minutes to hours, and are generated when an infected person breathes, speaks, coughs or sneezes and may also be generated during dental procedures. This webinar will discuss the current science and understanding of the transmission of COVID-19, the role of aerosols in disease transmission, and mitigation strategies to help ensure a safe dental visit for patients and dental personnel.
