Is this bad?

When I was at the dentist, my dentist was examining my teeth and he was not wearing a dental mask. Is that allowed?.

Update:

I am aware but usually dentists are supposed to wear masks and he was not wearing one.

Update 2:

Protect him from what?, I have no illnesses and absolutely no germs.

Update 3:

Alright, I UNDERSTAND and I get that but what I don't understand is why he was was not wearing a mask at all.

    Allowed yes, but it’s not to protect you, it’s to keep your mouth secretions from spraying into his face

    There is a world wide shortage of masks due to the Corona Virus, in the UK news yesterday.

    The mask protects him, not you.

    The mask is for THEIR protection; not yours. His risk.

    The mask is to protect him from you, not vice versa.
