End of 2020

Lorenzo Breschi

Dear Colleagues,

December 2020 marks the end of a very unexpected and difficult year for the entire planet. Covid-19 pandemic literally modified our lives and our habits starting from the very beginning of the year. Since then, groups from different background, including researchers, epidemiologists, virologists, and public health experts along with politicians and media scholars are, with their respective knowledge, analyzing the emergency and trying to put into act a solid plan to return to normality. 

We are all aware that there is still much to do, especially now that Coronavirus has paralyzed our traditional way of life and has even put our existence at risk. Indeed, isolation has led us to reduced human contacts and interactions, and as regard medicine and dentistry, patient care delivery. However, even if critical, this situation allowed us to reflect and to explore new alternatives by making better use of available technology.

We have also realized that much of our practice and training of new generations of dentists, is traditionally based on secondary prevention but, in a health disaster of this magnitude, this approach needs to be revised and primary prevention incorporated as a priority and an essential tool to reduce the advent of oral pathologies and illnesses in general. 

Following the needs of this changed scenario, Dentistry33 is hardly trying to inform and instruct the readers with the new trends and protocols in dentistry and for me, it is important to thank the people who have contributed to the success of our page during these months, constantly trying to study and produce updated topics on Coronavirus emergency. 

Not less important, the end of a year is the time to thank our readers for being with us and for inspiring us to publish new and relevant topics concerning dentistry every week. 

We strongly believe in the power of international connections, as well as in international exchange of knowledge and clinical skills. 

For the year 2021, our plans are to grow further and become a reference page for dentists in the hope to connect people and experts all over the world, with the ultimate goal to provide patients with state-of-the-art dentistry, based on scientific facts and clinical experience.

Lastly, I would like to wish every dentist, their family and friends, a Merry Christmas and joyful holidays. May you have a successful and memorable 2021. 

Lorenzo Breschi
