The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has affected life throughout the world, and dentistry is no exception. Dentistry has already been shown to be a hazardous occupation due to numerous infectious and health risks associated with it. Over the past year and a half, this risk has only grown because of the highly transmissible nature of the Coronavirus. Dentistry, being a profession where the operator and the assistants are in close contact with the patients, has seen numerous changes. Not only this, but even dental education has been impacted as most of the teaching over the pandemic period has been conducted online. Dental education has been highly impacted as it involves a major part being hands-on. Due to this, there are several social, financial, and health-related repercussions that must be analyzed and understood. The aim of this Special Issue is to invite manuscripts, both research and review that analyze the SARS-CoV-2 situation with regard to dentistry and dental education.
- Potential topics can include but not be limited to:
- Dental education and COVID-19
- Problems faced by dental students during the pandemic
- Online versus offline teaching in dentistry
- Changes made to dental practice due to COVID-19
- Infection control during the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic
- Dental treatment during the pandemic
- New measures incorporated during COVID-19
- Occupational hazards
