Special Issue in Journal of Clinical Medicine: Clinical Management of Oral Healthcare in Diverse Patient Populations
Answers to the questions around the interception and treatment of dental problems in vulnerable patients are increasingly becoming a necessity. From pediatric to adult age, oral health management of special-needs patient must make use of dedicated medical staff and new methods for early diagnosis and treatment of affected hard and soft tissues and facilitate access. The interventions and actions taken against this population are connoted as “positive discrimination” or as actions that intend to limit the discrimination of care and combat situations of social and health vulnerability.
In addition, the pandemic has highlighted even more situations of social hardship with the aggravation of social and health precarious codes.
This Special Issue is aimed at applied research on the management of vulnerable patients both in terms of application of new therapies and materials and in the adaptation of techniques already consolidated but which enable or facilitate access to dental care and treatment itself.
Research articles, review articles, as well as short communications are invited.
