Dentists at Risk

Most people may not consider a dental office to be a place where one may possibly lose his hearing, but the prescribed limit of occupational noise exposurefor any worker should not exceed 85 decibels.

Most dental handpiecesare between 90 to 200 decibels, which puts the dental professionals at risk for hearing loss over time. There are other more damaging sources of noise that can cause hearing loss to dentists, but there areways to preserve hearing so that they will not be among the statistics of hearing impaired dental professionals.
