Pre-Procedural Mouth Rinse

The College of Registered Dental Hygienists of Alberta is aware of recently published research showing that a hydrogen peroxide pre-procedural rinse is largely ineffective in inactivating SARS-CoV-2. Also, a published systematic review found no evidence to support it’s use.
