Paper: Global Economic Impact of Dental Diseases.
Team: Listl S, Galloway J, Mossey PA, Marcenes W

This paper suggests that the global economic impact of dental diseases amounted to US$442 billion in 2010. Improvements in population oral health may imply substantial economic benefits not only regarding reduced treatment costs but also because of fewer productivity losses in the labour market.

Stefan Listl is member of the theme Healthcare improvement science.
