The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic is an unprecedented global public health crisis. It poses a significant challenge for dentistry as there is a high risk of cross infection between patients and dental practitioners. Endodontists and their staff are especially vulnerable as they are often called upon to manage dental emergencies and carry out treatments of extended duration.

The impact of the virus on endodontic disease and practice is yet to be fully realized. This Research Topic welcomes clinical reports on the impact of SARS-CoV-2 on academic dentistry and private practice. Basic science research is also desired on how the virus could potentially modulate pulpal and periapical disease.

The goals of this Research Topic are:

1. To present a global perspective of the impact of the pandemic on academic institutions.
2. To present a global perspective on the impact of the pandemic on private endodontic offices.
3. To present basic science studies on the potential interactions between odontogenic infections and SARS-CoV-2.

This Research Topic will integrate clinical and basic science reports related to SARS-CoV-2. Clinical reports will include, but not be limited to, the types of emergency patients treated, changes made to clinical protocols and comparison of SARS-CoV-2 to other epidemics and pandemics. Basic science studies will include, but not be limited to, viral- bacterial interactions as related to endodontic infections, the potential role of non-coding RNAs and the modulation of the host immune response by the virus.
