D is for Dentists

You know that high pitched sound of the hand drill that most of us cringe from? Well, being around that all day can put your dentist at risk for developing a noise-induced hearing loss. Special hearing protection is available in order to lower the damaging noise while still allowing them to converse with the patient. Of course, if one notices a change in their hearing then a hearing test is also a good idea, to see how much the noise is affecting them. Tag a dentist, hygienist or dental student you care about!
