Dentists face a high risk of tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss
Did you know that an average of 37% of all dentists suffer from tinnitus and noise induced hearing loss?
This means that a lack of hearing protection while performing dental procedures can put dentists as well as their staff at risk for irreversible hearing damage, tinnitus, and or even complete hearing loss. This leads to a lifetime of pain and discomfort, worker’s compensation claims, a shorter career, and an overall reduced quality of life. Of course, besides the workplace, many dentists can also acquire hearing damage from performing other activities.
At Big Ear, we want our customers to be able to protect themselves not only from hazards in the workplace but also from lifestyle activities. This is why we created The One Series Dentist Custom Hearing Protection.
