Abstract

Editorial Note for Special Issue â??Dental Care during COVID-19â?

Gary Goldstein

Dental care is sometimes urgent, and putting it off can at times flare up the issue. While some issues can be handled through tele consultation. While it is okay for patients wanting a crown, regular cleaning to put their plans on hold, there are certain procedures that should not be delayed. As we all know COVID-19 isn't going anywhere and this is the new normal. So we have to learn to live with it.

But the lockdown shelved the plan and now we to bear with the expanders for longer now. Dentists are opening their clinics with protective gear and necessary precautions but people are scared to venture out.
