Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Oral health professionals promote universal oral health for diseases that are primarily preventable and/or treated in their early stages. The delivery of oral health care, whether through therapeutic interventions, pre-ventive care, or long-term maintenance, causes pollutants and has a significant carbon footprint. Oral health practitioners share a moral obligation to society to offer optimal oral health services, ensure patient safety, and decrease their environmental impact. To ensure the long-term viability of oral healthcare services, all or-ganisations should recognise the critical need to work together to develop knowledge, identify remedial pos-sibilities, and exchange best practices that are environmentally friendly.
