Oral health of seafarers - a review


Sobotta, B A J; Reiber, T; Nitschke, I (2011). Oral health of seafarers - a review. International Maritime Health, 62(1):8-16.

Abstract

The research base needs to be expanded to cover all seafarers. Dental professional expertise should be sought in policy and guideline development relevant to oral health. A strategy comprising preventive, screening, and treatment service components should be developed and a certificate of dental health introduced. Funding strategies in a complex environment of transnational stakeholders for the improvement of oral-health services for seafarers are needed. Aspects of military oral health care systems could be an example for civilian operators.
