This is a scary report. Be careful when choosing your dentist!
“The report states that there were 894 patients treated for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis during the study period at the Virginia hospital. One percent of these or 9 patients were found to be dental healthcare workers (1 dental technician and 9 dentists). According to Nett, this is a 23 times higher incidence than expected.”
This is just what has been reported there are more than likely way more cases, be safe!
