Description


This webinar aims to discuss the distinctive challenges confronted by dentists operating in unstable environments and humanitarian crises. Through open discussions, we will shed light on the increased prevalence of oral health conditions and disparities encountered in these regions. While outlining the obstacles faced by dental professionals, including limited resources, complex dental needs, infrastructure deficiencies, and safety concerns - with a view of considering solutions. We would like this session to cultivate networks of research and support to address these challenges.
The session will feature dentists and dental researchers actively engaged or collaborating to promote the provision of oral healthcare or research in these environments.

Our panel comprises experts working across various regions currently grappling with such crises, including Sudan, the Middle East, Latin America and other areas.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding challenges faced by dentists in unstable environments
  • Sharing best practices and innovative solutions and interventions
  • Building a supportive network and fostering collaboration in research for and in these environments

Sponsored by

IADR's Global Oral Health Inequalities Research Network (GOHIRN), in collaboration with the FDI World Dental Federation, is organizing this interactive virtual panel. Through this session, we will provide a platform for populations affected by humanitarian crises and empower dentists to be consider with the hope for a meaningful change in those challenging circumstances.
