Presenter: Markus Troeltzsch, MD, DMD



COVID-19 is caused by a coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2. The family of coronaviruses is large and were identified in the 1960’s. However, Corona appears to be much more virulent than previous identified strains.

COVID-19 spreads rapidly and has resulted in over 67,000 deaths in the United States. The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, mainly through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. The question is can we protect ourselves and our patients during this pandemic and provide care or should dentistry stop until the virus vanishes?

Learning Objectives:

  1. What do we need to know about dental aerosols?
  2. What does the literature tell us about our past PPE protocols?
  3. What changes are necessary to PPE and disinfection of operatories between patients?
