Dental occupations are among the highest risk for exposure to COVID-19, according to an analysis from Visual Capitalist. Dental hygienists measure a risk score of 99.7 and dentists 92.1, with 100 representing the highest possible risk, based on contact with others, physical proximity, and exposure to disease. Dental assistants also topped the list with a risk score of 92.5.
