Oral diseases are the most common noncommunicable diseases affecting half of the world’s population. Oral conditions, particularly dental caries, periodontal diseases and tooth loss affect people throughout their lifetime and impact on the quality of an individual’s life and increase the cost of healthcare systems. We are organising a Special Issue on oral health outcomes in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
Identifying the proximal and contextual determinants of oral health outcomes is important to inform public health policies and health promotion interventions aiming at reducing the burden of oral diseases and reducing inequalities in oral health. Research addressing the determinants of oral health outcomes and interventions to reduce the burden of oral diseases can provide insights to develop new public health policies and maintain existing policies aiming at addressing oral health outcomes.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to oral health outcomes, particularly the determinants of oral diseases, intervention to reduce the burden of oral diseases and correlations between oral and general health. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the research topics.
