Abstract

At the end of 2019 a novel disease (COVID-19) resulting from a new β-virus (SARS-CoV-2) of the Coronavirus family was identified. The mode of transmission of this highly virulent disease occurs through saliva and aerosol formation. Dental treatments have been intrinsically associated with the risk of cross-infection, due to the working setting proximal to the mouth of the patient and generation of aerosol during most of the procedures. Consequently, major concerns have been raised among dentists on how to prevent COVID-19 transmission in dental studios while continuing to treat patients safely
