Dentistry as a global profession

Editor-in-Chief David Danesh, Harvard '20, writes: "According to a September 2018 World Health Organization (WHO) oral health fact sheet, oral diseases are the most common non-communicable diseases, with dental caries in permanent dentition affecting over half of the world's population. This reminds us that preventable oral disease still exists and that as much as we can, dentists should be taking an active role in improving the oral health status of our neighbors far and wide. Global trends in economics, technology, urbanization and more drive societal changes that can further complicate these efforts, which shows us why the need for international collaboration will be critical in the future."

The May issue of Contour includes an overview of advanced standing and international dentist pathway programs for dentists from other countries, an article about dental tourism and more.
