SIGUA-RODRIGUEZ, Eder Alberto et al. COVID-19 and Dentistry: a Review of Recommendations and Perspectives for Latin America. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2020, vol.14, n.3, pp.299-309. ISSN 0718-381X.

COVID-19 is a profound, highly contagious and life-threatening viral disease that will be with us for a long time. Health Care-related professions and life in its entirety are significantly, and perhaps irreversibly affected, all around the World. COVID-19 is and will continue to transform Dentistry and its practise. Based on the available evidence accrued to date, this work attempts to address such changes, current and anticipated, as well as present recommendations for clinical practise implementation, tailored for Latin/South America, in light of such lifealtering momentous pandemic.
