Care Dental Project During COVID-19; Impact of an airborne infection isolation standard HVAC system

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Diagnostics, Genomics & Transmission Dynamics, Equipment & Technology Innovations

This purpose of this project is to determine whether an ICU-grade negative pressure ventilation system reduces risk for self-reported cold and flu symptoms in dental office staff and patients. This will be accomplished through a natural experiment comparing self-reported cold and flu symptoms from patients and staff with the newly renovated ICU-grade negative pressure, to a typical ventilation system in a second dental office.
