‘Ventilation Calculator’ May Help Dental Practices Improve Air Quality


Researchers at the Eastman Institute for Oral Health in Rochester, New York, have created a “ventilator calculator” to help dental practices improve their indoor air quality in an effort to mitigate the risk for SARS-CoV-2 transmission. The calculator determines the number of air changes per hour in a given space, which then informs oral health professionals on whether they need to implement additional strategies, such as adding an air cleaner, to increase the ventilation rate. The study, recently published in the Journal of Dentistry, explains how the use of a carbon monoxide monitor, baking soda, and vinegar can be used to determine the ventilation rate.
