Abstract:

An air conduction hearing test, in conjunction with a questionnaire concerning noise exposure and hearing problems, was administered to 1216 dentists attending the ADA meeting in Chicago. Within the groups showing hearing loss probably due to noise, avocational noise exposure played a significant role. Despite the recommendation of the Council for Dental Materials and Devices, only 3 of the dentists surveyed wore any protective hearing device. Author
