||Literature review of cancer mortality and incidence among dentists

||This review assesses the epidemiological literature describing dentist mortality and cancer incidence risk. Relevant studies were identified through 2006 by means of database queries. Cancer mortality and incidence generally showed a favourable risk pattern for lung cancer and overall cancer occurrence. Nevertheless, several studies reported an increased risk for certain cancers, such as skin cancer, brain cancer and breast cancer among women. Implications of these findings are discussed.
