Dentists constitute a group of professionals who are likely to be exposed to biological health hazards in the course of their work. Relying on relevant literature, the present paper discusses selected occupational biohazards as well as baseline precautionary measures. A dentist can become infected either directly or indirectly as they deal with the potential carriers of these biohazards. So it is important and mandatory for every practitioner of dentistry to know about biohazards.
