Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
This special issue will cover several aspects of pediatric dentistry with an emphasis on childhood caries. Among the topics will be the epidemiology of caries and health disparities. The uneven epidemiology has consequences for caries risk assessment, treatment plans, patient/parent motivation, and public health measures, each itself a topic to be explored. Also considered will be new insights into the microbial etiology of caries which may drive changes in prevention and treatment as will new knowledge related to genetic susceptibilities. Finally, the traditional but highly relevant factors of diet and hygiene will be covered.
Prof. Dr. Jeffrey A. Banas
