The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China, has now affected more than 100 countries around the world. In the light of the WHO declaring COVID-19 as a public health emergency of international concern, despite global efforts to contain the killer disease, the cases are still increasing due to community spread. Coronavirus or the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 is present abundantly in the infected person's salivary and nasopharyngeal secretions. The contagion occurs very easily through these droplets, which are very evident in any dental clinic. However, the dental clinics are open for emergency treatments. The aim of this article is to give a glance into the impact of COVID-19 on dentistry in India.
