I want to know if somebody spits in your mouth, does your DNA kill their saliva or does their saliva stay there forever?
Where to begin....: Spitting.... Kissing... It's the same thing. Saliva in and of itself is not "alive". Dna is genetic material, and in and of itself does not kill saliva (especially since it is not alive to begin with). Forever is a very, very, long time, so the answer is no. Can't tell what the point of of your question is, repost it if necessary. ...Read more

Very low: Unless the dentist had an active infection at the time your chances of getting any kind of illness from this incident is very, very low. That being said, I would switch dentists. Any time a dentist is talking "over" a patient they should be wearing a mask. This simple procedure protects both the patient and the dentist from unwanted exposure to germs when they are in each others personal space. ...Read more

If the child inhales water into the lungs, the vocal cords can spasm. The drowning is defined 'dry' because it occurs out of the water.
