Abstract

 The COVID-19 pandemic has caused economic and health consequences in many countries around the world. Some occupations, including dentists, were highlighted as the most endangered due to aerosols and the possibility of spreading the COVID-19 virus during the incubation period. It is well-known that aerosol generated in dental procedures with a large number of droplets, provoking that the standard protective measures in daily clinical work may not be effective enough to prevent the spread of COVID-19, especially when patients are in the incubation period or unaware that they are infected. The aim of the study is to check the attitude and possible fear and concern related to the COVID-19 pandemic among dentists in Bosnia and Herzegovina who are employed in the public and private health sector.
