Introduction:

Dental care exposes acting personnel to the risk of infection and of acquiring the coronavirus-2 disease, called COVID-19.

Objective:

To provide a theoretical reference on COVID-19 to support the preparation of stomatologists for risk perception and self-protection in the current conditions of this pandemic.

Method:

At the General Teaching Hospital "Dr. Agostinho Neto", between March and June 2020 a narrative review was made on this topic through a search in different bibliographic databases: Pubmed/Medline, ScienceDirect and SciELO.

Results:

It was found articles by several authors that contribute to the knowledge of the prevention of the new coronavirus in the health services.

Conclusions:

Taking into account the way of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 reveals that oral medicine specialists are one of the health science professionals with the greatest risk of illness from COVID-19, therefore, it is necessary to set up the essential theoretical bases for its prevention and diagnosis, which are reflected in this article.
