Coronavirus infection has been considered by the WHO (World Health Organization) as a global pandemic. Since its origin, it has posed a threat to global health, not so much because of its symptoms, but also because of its rapid spread and contagion and the respiratory complications that they produce in patients with other chronic underlying conditions. Telehealth has caused prominence in this time of COVID-19 since many face-to-face consultations have been closed to avoid contagion and virtuality has been preferred. Teledentistry has not been the exception, facilitating the consultation of patients, specialists and / or dental care providers at a distance to provide dental services, especially diagnostic and preventive optimized in the physical absence of the patient. This literature review article aims to describe the use of teledentistry as a tool in times of COVID-19, its application and use in different dental specialties.

KEY WORDS: COVID-19, Technology, Teledentistry.
