Abstract

The massive spread of the novel coronavirus and its associated disease COVID 19 as a pandemic around
the world has gripped the international community, crippled healthcare systems and raised enormous public
health concerns. The universe attempts to restrict the virus until now have yielded little fruit because of the
zoonotic transmission ability of the virus. Countless healthcare professionals have already become infected
with the disease and dentists are considered to be especially vulnerable. This article reviews the origins of
the virus, its modes of transmission, symptoms and the recommendation provided to the dentists to diagnose
and manage a patient confirmed/ suspected of COVID 19 in the dental office.
