I would like to invite you to submit a contribution to a Special Issue on Prevention and Oral Health in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
Oral health is an important factor in the maintenance of general health, wellbeing, and overall quality of life. Envisioning a transformational change in the management of oral healthcare, this Special Issue welcomes manuscripts that can contribute the knowledge necessary to effectively manage oral prevention and oral healthcare.
This Special Issue will focus on oral health and prevention and their impact on clinical practice current oral health literacy and policies. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
Preventive strategies should be implemented to reduce oral problems, due to the negative consequences on 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 patients, healthy or special needs ones, are included in general health status improvements.
Adopting multi-, inter-, and transdisciplinary perspectives and a systems approach, expected submissions will cover the following topics:
- Oral prevention and oral healthcare management;
- Systems management for sustainability in oral healthcare organizations;
- Knowledge management in oral healthcare organizations;
- Education for oral healthcare sustainability;
- New technologies for oral healthcare sustainability;
- Oral prevention project for improving awareness and knowkedge of oral health.
All original articles, case reports, and review articles will be welcome.
