Would the use of fans in the operatory be of concern because of aerosols?

OSAP is unaware of any literature concerning fans in an operatory. An extensive search failed to locate any such literature. Dental infection control expert Dr. Shannon Mills, Retired COL. United States Air Force, is also unaware of any literature on the use of fans in the operatory. However, he does believe the use of fans could theoretically spread aerosols or small droplets. On this empiric basis, he has discouraged the use of fans in dental clinics that he has managed.
