Abstract

COVID-19 infection as described by Merriam Webster 2 as a mild to severe respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus that is mainly transmitted through interaction or contact with transmittable material such as respiratory droplets or with matter or surfaces contaminated with the virus causing it. The main aim of this article was to review Psychosocial Implications of Lockdown on Dental Professionals. Due to the lockdown situation attributed to COVID-19 infection around the world, a large number of dentists are affected in every aspect of life mentally, physically and economically. The self employed dentists were also concerned about their financial consequences personally. In a country like India, where a large number of cases are asymptomatic or with no or very little symptoms of infection have increased problems for dentists.
