The Effect of Prevention on Sustainability 

As our impact on our planet continues to cause concern, all sectors of our society must take a role in reducing their energy use, water consumption and waste production. Prevention of oral disease can address these environmental issues in the provision of oral health care. A sustainable future depends on prevention of oral disease to minimize that impact.
