Yahoo interviewed John Sellick about whether people can safely go to the dentist? Sellick said, "Dentists are working right up at the top of the respiratory tract, and that can be risky. Dentists have to take extra precautions in terms of self-protection and the protection of everyone else because of the aerosols that can be generated.” But he added: “Routine dental visits can probably be done pretty safely if the proper precautions are taken.”
