Background: An outbreak of Corona virus disease (SARS-CoV-2) was first identified in Wuhan, China and spread worldwide. This disease was officially named as Corona virus disease (COVID-19) by WHO on February 12, 2020. The main routes of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 are through respiratory droplets and direct contact with the infected person. There is a high risk of COVID-19 transmission in dental practices. The aerosols and droplets generated during dental procedures can increase risk of transmission. Due to the high risk of COVID-19 transmission via dental practice, the dentists need to take infection control measures. SARS CoV-2 can be prevented in the dental setting by taking protective measures i.e. using adequate personal protecting equipment (PPE), prescribing mouth rinses prior to dental treatment, cleaning and disinfecting workplace and good ventilation.
