In recent times, numerous scientific articles have been published on the risks of exposure to infectious microorganisms in dental care settings. The main mode of transmission of such infectious organisms is primarily through bioaerosols generated during routine dental procedures which put both dental care providers and their patients at an increased risk of exposure. Other frequent modes of infection transmission often reported include cross contamination and inadequate adoption of infection control protocols. The main objective of this article is to highlight the findings of those studies that have reported on the routes and modes of transmission of infectious organisms in dental settings, to report possibilities of cross contamination in dental care settings, and also to report any breach in adherence to infection control protocols in dental care settings. We also intend to emphasize on standard infection control protocols and strategies that need to be considered in dental care settings during disease outbreaks like coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

The outbreak of this corona virus disease 19 (COVID-19) was first reported in Wuhan city in China and now it has become a global issue The total number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 recorded globally has surpassed 100,000 The mode of transmission of COVID-19 is usually from person to person and it could also be through direct transmission such as cough, sneeze, and inhalation of droplets Dental care providers are at higher risk since they are more prone to cross contamination with the patient's saliva and aerosols that are released during the dental procedures They can also be transmitted through other routes such as direct contact with blood, oral fluids, and from contaminated instruments This paper intends to provide primordial-level preventive measures for dental care providers against this life-threatening COVID-19 HOW TO CITE THIS ARTICLE: Khanagar SB, Al-Ehaideb A, Naik S, et al Primordial-level Preventive Measures for Dental Care Providers against Life-threatening Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) Int J Clin Pediatr Dent 2020;13(2):176-179

"The concept of total wellness recognizes that our every thought, word, and behavior affect our greater health and well-being. And we, in turn, are affected not only emotionally but also physically and spiritually."-Greg Anderson.
