Overview

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, and x-ray hazards, among others. 

The ADA has long advocated for the use of modern applications to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses. The ADA provides scientific evidence, information, and commentary to ensure federal workplace regulations are rooted in sound science and fair to small businesses. The Association also provides resources to help dentists identify workplace hazards and understand how to prevent them.
