Oral health means more than just good teeth.

Oral health is a determinant factor for quality of life, essential for well-being, and an integral part of general health.

Our mission is to improve oral health and enhance cost-effective prevention of oral diseases in Europe.

In the EU, the socio-economic burden of oral diseases is considerable: they affect the majority of school-aged children and adults and account for 5% of public health spending.

Treatment expenditure exceeds that for other diseases, including cancer, heart disease, stroke and dementia. This is disturbing, given that much of the oral disease burden is preventable.
