Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With this Special Issue we intend to update information relevant to epidemiological studies and data on oral health carried out for children and young people in the globality of countries, regions, cities or minority groups. This information is of utmost importance for the realization, structuring, design and implementation of oral public health programs aimed especially at the child population.

We also intend to carry out with this special issue the acquisition of information relevant to studies on primary prevention, health promotion and clinical trials of preventive actions for the different oral pathologies that can be presented in the child patient at the oral and dental level. We do not forget the different types of palliative and restorative treatments specific to children's patients that will be necessary for the implementation of these community oral health programs.

I encourage you to participate in this Special Issue by sending the results of your research or reviews on the above mentioned topics.
