I would like to invite you to submit a contribution to a Special Issue on Oral Health of Children, Adolescents, and Young Adults in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health.
When it comes to understanding the prevalence of oral disease and investigation from children to young adults, oral health is a crucial aspect, as it shows the sign of deficiencies, inflammation, and infection. Problems arising from oral health have significant adverse consequences on children’s and young adults’ health and overall well-being, including an increased risk of future caries, hospitalizations, emergency room visits, and missed school days.
This Special Issue is open to any subject related to oral health for young people and children, which could improve the current oral health literacy and policies. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities. For detailed information on the journal, you can refer to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
