We are confronting a global health crisis that is significantly impacting community health, bringing about the death toll, spreading human misery, and overturning individual’s lives. The coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO), is striking societies at their core. This outbreak is inextricably linked to the students of the nation, as it has dramatically impeded educational sectors. With the closure of educational institutions across the world, instructional schooling has ground to a halt from the level of primary education up to the level of professional training. COVID-19 has exhibited significant psychological and actual consequences for the students. Guiding focuses or helplines/gateways should be set up to avoid any grave consequences and untoward misfortunes.

Keywords: COVID- 19, Dental students, Dental education, Paediatric dentistry.
