Regulatory boards and many dental associations, some experts on infection control published and updated regulatory burdens and recommendation on infection prevention during COVID-19 pandemic in dental settings. Our aim is to focus on some problems and difficulties in applying the recommendations concerning the supply of proper items (PPE, surface disinfectant) or concerning their specific uses and skin injuries. We searched electronic English articles published in Google Scholar databases (January-May 2020) using various combinations of the key indexing terms. 61 articles were selected for comprehensive reading according to the inclusion criteria. On the basis of our experience in a university department and private offices, we believe that regulatory burdens based on better knowledge on bioburden, task-specific, evidence-based guidelines and resources, education and training are required to improve compliance with infection control recommendations, avoid inappropriate adoption under EU and National laws and to prevent skin injuries.
