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, impact the quality of an individual’s life, and increase the cost of healthcare systems. Given the success of the first edition of the Special Issue “Research on Oral Health Outcomes” published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH) (https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph/special_issues/oral_health_outcomes), we would like to continue exploring this topic. IJERPH is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. Over the past 6 years, there has been a continuous growth of the journal and an increase in the Impact Factor based on citation activity on the Web of Science. 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 to reduce the burden of oral diseases and inequalities in oral health. Research addressing the determinants of oral health outcomes and interventions to reduce the burden of oral diseases can provide insights for the development of new public health policies and the maintenance of existing policies with the aim to address oral health outcomes.
The second edition of this Special Issue is still open to any subject area related to oral health outcomes, in particular, the determinants of oral diseases, intervention to reduce the burden of oral diseases, and correlations between oral and general health. In this Special Issue, we will also include papers on inequality in health and related behaviours. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Social determinants of oral health;
- Inequalities in health and related behaviours;
- Oral health-related behaviours;
- Impact of dental services on oral health;
- Impact of systemic conditions on oral health;
- Common risk factors for oral health and general health;
- Interventions aiming at preventing oral diseases;
- Community-based health promotion policies aiming at improving oral health.
