“COVID-19”- Corona (CO) Virus (VI) Disease
(D) named as COVID and 19 stand for the year
2019. World Health Organization has declared it
as pandemic and as of now more than 180
countries have been affected and it is spreading
like a wild fire all over the world. No one could
predict the future and a lot of speculations about
the prospects of dentistry when the pandemic
goes untamed. This article is a modest attempt
to understand the Covid 19 crash, confront in
dental scenario when no dental school could
have envisaged such a situation of a prolonged
interlude. Due to the uniqueness of dental
settings, the peril of cross infection may be high.
In India all dental care other than emergency is
suspended at the moment. But as WHO put
forward, learning to live with Covid 19 may be
vital. So in no longer time we need to introduce
social, behavioral changes with effective
infection control protocols to normalize our life
to the best doable extend and to abide by the
guidelines issued by Indian Ministry of Health,
Indian Council for Medical Research and Indian
Dental Association.
