Oil Based Paint – Toxic When Dry?

Carrie asked 6 years ago

I have a painter that uses oil based paint on the trim and kitchen cabinets. I know that the fumes can be toxic when wet, but is there any toxicity once the paint is dry? My family and I will not be in the house while it’s being painted. I like the look the oil based paint gives, but I don’t want him to use it if there is a possibility it could still give off toxicity (even slight) when dry. Thanks!!
