Session Description 
This symposium will discuss the current state of knowledge in salivary research about the role of saliva on COVID-19 pathogenesis and on SARS-CoV-2 detection. Here, the advantages and challenges for detecting SARS-CoV-2 in saliva will be presented, and state-of-the-art OMICS technologies will be introduced as innovative approaches for the detection of SARS-CoV-2 and its products. In the end, the speakers will discuss the prospective psychological impact of COVID-19 on dentists by comparing stress biomarkers in saliva with self-reported stress levels using a validated instrument.

Learning Objectives
