FDI Council recently published an official statement outlining key principles for dental practice and oral health promotion during the pandemic.

After its emergence in December 2019, COVID-19 has grown to pandemic proportions with over 5.7 million cases and 350,000 deaths confirmed in over 200 countries as of the beginning of June 2020. COVID-19 is not only negatively impacting people’s health, but also economies, education, productivity and the overall strength of health systems. The lack of effective treatment or vaccine means that infection control through non-pharmaceutical public health measures currently appear to be the only means to combat the pandemic1.
