Study Shows COVID-19 Infection Rates Lower Among Dentists

More than a year after COVID-19 appeared in the United States, dentists continue to have a lower infection rate than other front-line health professionals, such as nurses and physicians, according to a study published in The Journal of the American Dental Association. The study, “COVID-19 among Dentists in the U.S. and Associated Infection Control: a six-month longitudinal study” looks at the number of dentists with confirmed or probable COVID-19 infections over more than six months. The results of this study show that prevalence and incidence rates among dentists continue to be very low when compared to the population as a whole and to other health care professionals.
