The oral health status of populations involves a complex network of determination. The most recent definition of the World Dental Federation pointed out that social environment and physical environment are determinants of oral health. There is evidence in the scientific literature on the importance of social determinants of health and specifically in oral health. The investigation of environmental factors on oral health needs to progress further. Knowledge of these determinants allows us to propose strategies for overcoming inequalities in oral health. This is one of the challenges of today’s world. This Special Issue will examine studies of social and environmental determinants of oral health.
