Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Even if you have mono, then no worries, it shall self resolve in a few weeks time, rest and supportive care is advised. I am sure your dentist have taken precautions and wont have used the boys instruments on you, no one does. So no worries.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
