New Resources Released from Preventing Chronic Disease

Preventing Chronic Disease released a collection of oral health articles. These articles include topics such as inequities in access to dental care, disparities in prevalence of oral disease, the relationship between oral health and chronic diseases, and the impact of COVID-19 on access to oral health services and disease monitoring. The articles provide a snapshot of why oral health needs to be elevated as a policy priority by being integrated into discussions and policy decisions about health. Addressing the social, behavioral, and environmental determinants of health as part of oral health care offers a new approach to prevention and treatment.
