According to the World Health Organization, despite great achievements in oral health of populations globally, problems still remain in many communities all over the world and particularly among under-privileged groups in developed and developing countries. Dental caries and periodontal diseases have historically been considered the most important global oral health burdens. At present, the distribution and severity of oral diseases vary among different parts of the world and within the same country or region.

The significant role of socio-behavioural and environmental factors in oral disease and health is evidenced in an extensive number of epidemiological surveys. Dental caries is still a major oral health problem in most industrialized countries, affecting 60-90% of schoolchildren and the vast majority of adults. It is also a most prevalent oral disease in several Asian and Latin-American countries, while it appears to be less common and less severe in most African countries (http://www.who.int/oral_health/policy/en/).

In this Research Topic, we will explore dental health around the world using epidemiological and anthropological approaches.
