Podcast: Prof Richard Watt on Social Determinants of Oral Health

Podcast series 

Professor Richard Watts speaks about the 11th IADR World Congress on Preventive Dentistry which was held in New Delhi, India, 3-7 October last year. 

In a wide ranging interview Richard discusses the developments in public health and education, gaps in research and events in 2018 that will profile international work on the social determinants of oral health.

"There has been an enormous shift in dental public health with the understanding of the broader agenda, and the need to engage with sectors and agencies outside the health system. The WHO eBook on the Social Determinants and its oral health chapter will help advocacy efforts for oral health. There are massive gaps in research particularly in terms of upstream integrated interventions where there is a lack of appropriate evaluation that demonstrate impact on social, health and economic outcomes".
