El propósito es analizar las características de los estudios y las tendencias en las publicaciones científicas y las recomendaciones clínicas relacionadas con el COVID-19 en odontopediatría. La búsqueda electrónica se realizó en las bases de datos MEDLINE, Scopus, Web of Science Core Collection y LILACS/BVS, sin restricciones. Se incluyeron estudios que usaron términos referentes a COVID-19, odontología pediátrica y niños en el título, resumen o palabras clave. Se extrajeron datos bibliométricos y características de los estudios. Cada estudio se categorizó de acuerdo con su diseño, muestra y tema principal. Se incluyeron 49 estudios, la mayoría revisiones (n=25; 51,00%), estudios observacionales (n=23; 47,00%) y estudio clínico (n=1; 2%). Los principales temas fueron urgencias odontológicas (n=9; 18,30%), bioseguridad (n= 8; 16,30%) y teleodontología (n=6; 12,20%). Las urgencias odontológicas más reportadas fueron trauma (n=12; 63,10%), edema (n=9; 47,30%) y dolor (n=9; 47,30%). Se concluyó que se realizaron pocos estudios sobre COVID-19 y odontología pediátrica, y la mayoría de las revisiones y estudios observacionales sobre emergencias dentales se publicaron en Asia.
