ABSTRACT:The global outbreak of the newly identified virus COVID-19 has led to various challenges in the field of the healthcare department. Today this silent killer has claimed several deaths all over the world. Research work has been accelerated in the field of diagnosis, vaccines, and therapeutics to curb the contagious transmission of this virus. Dental professionals and dental care settings invariably carry a higher risk of transmission due to the specificity of dental procedures which involve face-to-face communication with patients and frequent exposure to saliva, blood, and other body fluids. Thus, this article is based on the latest guidelines and ongoing research on COVID-19 along with strictly recommended measures and management protocols for dentists in their private practices and dental institutions.
