Press conference. “World Oral Health Day reminds us that we are experiencing a real crisis in oral health today in industrialised and in developing countries. Oral disease is a global phenomenon affecting most adults and as many as 90 per cent of the world’s schoolchildren. Caries, periodontitis and oral cancer are among the most expensive diseases to treat but also among the most preventable”.
