Dental practitioners confront the highest risk of COVID-19 infection due to constant exposure to saliva, droplets, blood, and aerosols. Despite the suspension of routine dental care in many countries around the world, dental professionals perceive a moral duty to take part in the global fight against the pandemic. Therefore, dental professionals should be vigilant in defending against the transmission of the virus and as well as in the diagnosis of the disease through the oral manifestations of it. We conducted a literature review on publicly available data to outline updates on guidelines and studies of dental settings during the COVID-19 era. In this literature review, the categorization of the patients for dental treatments, protective precautions for the dental practice, considerations for dental drug prescription, and oral manifestations of the disease has been reviewed.
