Special Issue Information

During the pandemic, oral health has become a worldwide concern reaching systemic status.

Now, more than ever, professionals from several different medical fields are cooperating in order to provide prompt answers to increasing doubts about global wellness.

This Special Issue endeavors to collect manuscripts based on dental experience, systematic and narrative reviews of established techniques, surveys but also original articles and case reports that can support a different point of view about oral medicine, dental hygiene, systemic health and upcoming relations with COVID-19. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a study of the state-of-the-art of the problem and a starting point for future research. In light of this, articles addressing these topics are invited to this Special Issue.
