Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to changes in all aspects of dentistry, from administration adjustments to vast alterations in training and clinical practice. This article highlights the impact the pandemic has had on paediatric dentistry and orthodontics, and to discuss the changes that have been implemented as a result. It is likely that some of these changes will be permanent and recognizing how to adapt our practice will allow us to continue to provide the best possible care to our patients.

Clinical relevance: It is in both the patients’ and the clinicians’ best interests to be fully informed of the effects that the COVID-19 pandemic has had, and how to adapt in order to continue to give the best possible care for our patients.
