Welcome Summer 2020

Lorenzo Breschi


Dear readers,

Summer 2020 is definitely a strange and, under certain aspects, never existing season for our planet. The recent notorious burst of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) from Wuhan City (China), that suddenly rose between November and December 2019 has been classified, on March 11th, 2020, as a global public health emergency by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Starting from this winter, the entire word is facing and fighting the COVID-19 pandemic that is putting under pressure the political and scientific systems. Groups from different background, including epidemiologists, virologists, and public health experts along with politicians and media scholars are, with their respective tools, analyzing the emergency and trying to put into act a solid plan to defeat Coronavirus.
During this global crisis, with dramatic social and human costs, the entire world needs responses and initiatives to face the inevitable changes related to the measures taken to deal with the emergency and, above all, to overcome the impact they have on social relations.
As lockdowns have been imposed, people have turned in huge numbers to digital sources for entertainment, information, education, and to stay in touch with family and friends. In addition, with the rapid introduction of the concept of smart working, new emphasis has been devoted on the importance of the offerings that media providers deliver.
 To support the dental community, the authors and the editorial board of Dentistry33 team focused their attention and energy to inform and instruct dentists about probable scenario after the pandemic and possible strategies to avoid the spread of the infection, together with continuous interest for clinical tips and tricks related to everyday dental practice.
 The months of “social distancing” and “forced stop” from daily routine can be considered a good time to reflect on new goals and perspective for the up-coming future, as priorities may need to change. For example, new way to interact with patients and colleagues might shift towards a focus on short and frequent web and instant messaging communications.
The idea of our team is to give the instruments and the inputs to think to a new re-start with enthusiasm, with the awareness that change is not always meant to be the arrival of negative perspectives.
As we move into the beginning of an unusual summer and period for our profession, please feel free to contact our group with suggestions and ideas which would help our interactive page to continue to grow. 

Finally, I would like to wish every dentist, their family and friends, a happy and joyful summer holidays.


Lorenzo Breschi
