“The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet, and the cause and prevention of disease” (Thomas A. Edison, 1903). Today, the future has become a reality. The best way to care for our patients is to prevent disease before it requires treatment. Good oral health has significant impact on an individual’s general health and well-being. By promoting preventive dental care, screening, and the early treatment of oral diseases in children and adolescents, we can establish a strong foundation for healthy adulthood. Despite the progress that has been made in oral health awareness and education over the last few decades, oral diseases remain among the leading chronic diseases in children. In addition to caries, the most prevalent oral disease, periodontal diseases and malocclusions have tremendous impacts on both oral and general health. There is a need to shift from the traditional invasive dental treatment of children to a more personalized approach.
For this Special Issue, we welcome submissions of research papers, communications, reviews, and case reports addressing the themes of epidemiology, analysis of oral health care for children, oral health education, and the identification, screening, effective prevention, and non-invasive strategies for the management of oral diseases and malocclusions.
