As the inventor of the EarAid Intelligent Earpiece, hearing protection for practicing dental professionals, Dr. Sam Shamardi knows a few things about the dangers of hearing loss in dental practice.

Dr. Shamardi joins Andrew Johnston, RDH, BSBM, one of the two hygienists who hosts A Tale of Two Hygienists, with guest host, Dr. Joy Void-Holmes, to explore the dangers of noise-induced hearing loss among dental professionals.
