A novel coronavirus (COVID-19) poses a big challenge for healthcare professionals around the entire world. As the salivary titer of virus is very high, the dental professionals face high risk in rendering dental services. Most of the dental services in the country through colleges and clinics are shut down due to its spread by contact with droplets and transmission by aerosols. The Dental Council of India, the Indian Dental Association, and the Ministry of Health has framed certain guidelines to provide the emergency and urgent dental care pertaining to red, orange, and green zones as declared by the government. Guidelines also address academic schedules for undergraduate and postgraduate students. This review briefs academic and clinical guidelines for dental professionals taking in consideration the current scenario. These guidelines may change from time to time depending on the course of the diseases and regional needs. It is the responsibility of healthcare facilities and individual dentists to be aware of the updates and redefine their facilities and practice accordingly.
