Objectives: The aim of the study was to evaluate and check the international literature for Covid-19 prevention and dental education. Materials and Methods: A review of the international literature was performed, including articles in English about different aspects of transmission, preventive actions, and educational topics. Results: As a result, it seems that the better way to avoid contagion was represented by the use of personal protective equipment and handwashing in conjunction with social distancing and treatment limitation. Conclusions: Dental treatment limitation to emergencies, social distancing, and online teaching seemed to be the key to limit the Covid-19 outbreak, although there was no evidence of a universal guideline. This suggests that we have to establish general guidelines to avoid a second rush of contagion and limit the spread of infection in the future.
