Recently, with the emergence of world pandemic called COVID-19 virus all over the world, dental practitioners have stood out as high risked front liners. The aim of this study is to analyse the knowledge and management of emergency and safety precautions implemented by dentists during the pandemic of COVID-19 in Saudi Arabia. An online survey was used for this cross-sectional study using google forms and was distributed to dental professionals who works in government hospitals, private clinics, and academic universities in Saudi Arabia. Statistical evaluation was done using the data that was obtained from 355 dentists ( academicians, private practitioners, military and government employees) , with the power of the sample being 0.85. Relevant awareness regarding the incubation period and symptoms of COVID-19 virus was observed among the dental professionals.  Preparedness and perception among dental professionals seem to be satisfactory and statistically significant. Obligatory improvements should be provided through educational campaigns.
