Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The current SARS-Cov-2 pandemic has caused confusion in the clinical and academic world. Moreover, this emergency condition, despite the protocols that were promptly drawn up, caused delays on all fronts, related to non-urgent and postponable medical care. Even in the dental field, the emergency led to delays in treatment and the application of more stringent protocols, often ending up in postponing less urgent treatments with important consequences for the patients oral health. The goal of this Special Issue is to disseminate the knowledge regarding the current Sars-Cov-2 pandemic with related applications in the medical-dental field. Manuscripts of different types concerning this topic will be considered, both clinical studies, trials, systematic reviews, and prospective studies or proposals on new protocols or on new scientific evidence regarding the dental clinic and Sars-Cov-2 infections.
