“Nothing in life is to be feared; it is only to be understood. Now is the time to understand more, so that we may fear less.”

—Marie Curie.

The current novel coronavirus has affected dental practice like all other medical and nonmedical services. Due to aerosol involvement, the risk of cross-infection could be high between practitioners and patients. There have been guidelines and strict infection control protocols to be followed. I am sure the humanity will emerge successfully as in the past. The most important is how and what we learn in this pandemic episode. Dental professionals, with their knowledge of basic human science and sterile surgical techniques, are an invaluable resource in the COVID-19 pandemic response. It is commendable that many dentists have risen to the challenge in the fight against COVID-19. There is a greater need to have refresher courses for practicing dentists on new infection control strategies. Moreover, the curriculum in dental colleges should be expanded to include competencies in pandemic and disaster relief.

The aim of IJOHS is to give a highly readable and valuable addition to the literature in the field of dentistry which will serve as an indispensable reference tool for years to come and provide the readers of IJOHS with a new, well-constructed, informative, and educational journal.

To get the best benefits out of this improvement, we encourage submission of clinically oriented original research focused on the wide range of conditions encountered in hospitals and clinics associated with the scope of our journal. This will help us in scoring high in performance measures and moving up in journal-ranking lists.

As the Editor-in-Chief of IJOHS, I take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to the authors who have chosen IJOHS to disseminate their research. Further, I would like to thank the executive committee members and the members of the beauideal for the success of this journal. I sincerely thank the Bapuji Dental College Alumni Association for placing their faith in me.
