Greetings!

Welcome to the fourth issue of the year 2020.

I sincerely thank all the authors, reviewers, editorial board members, office bearers of IAPHD, all the members, Medknow and readers for extending their continuous support and cooperation for bringing out the fourth issue of the year 2020 successfully.

Teledentistry can be used in rural and urban settings to improve the accessibility a d availability of dental care. It also provides a critical solution to patient care while helping to flatten the curve of novel coronavirus transmission. During the tough times of COVID-19 pandemic teledentistry can act as promising method of delivery for maintaining patient contact and some elements of dental care including for screening, triage, pharmacotherapy, referrals, education and research. Well-organised research in this present scenario is much needed by the members.

With this we hope to reach newer heights in future with the contribution of the Head Office, Office Bearers, editorial board members, authors, reviewers, life and student members and Medknow.
