The novel coronavirus which originated from the city of Wuhan, China, in late 2019 has put the entire human race at risk. The widespread destruction caused by novel coronavirus has led the World Health Organization to declare it a pandemic disease on March 11, 2020. Health workers, especially the dentist, are at great risk of getting infected due to the nature of dental procedure which requires close proximity to the patient's mouth. The risk of cross-infection from dental settings is high, so proper infection control measures are required to restrict the spread of infection. This article focuses on the effect of COVID-19 on dental fraternity, its management in dental setup to restrict cross-contamination, and information on various guidelines issued to render their services in COVID-19 situation.
