Workplace Health & Safety

Dentists have a vested interest in maintaining safe and healthful office environment for themselves, their employees and their patients. This includes preventing exposure to infectious agents, waste anesthetic gas, allergens, damaging noise, ionizing radiation, and other hazards.

The ADA provides scientific evidence, information, and commentary to ensure workplace health and safety regulations are rooted in sound science and practical for small dental practices to administer. The Association also provides resources to help dentists identify workplace hazards and understand how to prevent them.
