Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Oral Pathologies and Their Impact on Public Health
Special Issue in International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health: Correlation between Food and Oral Health: Prevention, Diagnosis and Management of Linked Pathologies
This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts that can contribute the knowledge necessary to better understand the pathology, etiology, diagnosis, prevention, and management of oral pathologies in special needs patients. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities. Preventive strategies in special needs patients should be implemented to reduce oral problems, due to the negative consequences for individuals and communities in terms of pain and suffering, functional impairments, and reduced quality of life. Psychosocial factors, such as improved awareness, knowledge, and attitudes toward dental health care in both children and adult special needs patients, are included in general health status improvements. The published findings should lead to improving the prevention and management of medical disorders affecting the oral and maxillofacial areas of these kind of patients adopting multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary perspectives.
