Dental Public Health In Action: Putting Oral Health on the Local Public Health Agenda.
Authors: Walker IF, Eapen-Simon S, Gibson S Abstract Oral health is a key public health issue across England. In Wakefield in the north of England, local data suggested the oral health of local children was significantly worse than the national average. This paper describes the work undertaken by Wakefield Council to strategically address this issue. A structured process was adopted. Key lessons include; having senior ownership from the Director of Public Health, partnership working across all key stakeholders, utilising dental public health expertise from Public Health England and the use of extensive engagement w...

Editorial: Logos, Ethos and Pathos: Whither academia and public health in a post-truth world?
Authors: Robinson PG Abstract Rhetoric tells us there are three approaches to persuasive argument; logos, ethos and pathos (Bernanke, 2010). Logos is the appeal to logic by use of facts, data and analogies. Ethos is ethical appeal, focusing on the author's credibility or character with allied use of audience appropriate language and grammar. Pathos relates to emotional appeal by invoking sympathy, fear and anger. PMID: 29498246 [PubMed - in process] (Source: Community Dental Health)

The Effect of Complete Denture Occlusion on Function and Patient Quality of Life: Systematic Review.
This article investigates the available literature assessing complete denture occlusion by means of clinical trials or reviews of evidence. We utilised PRISMA guidelines to investigate the effect of complete denture occlusal scheme (balance occlusion vs. canine guidance) on functional or quality of life. Seven studies were included for review. All studies were poor to moderate quality with the majority lacking randomisation, blinding and demographic data from the study sample. The available evidence suggests that the differences between occlusal schemes may be small, challenging the notion that BO may be the optimal occlus...

Finnish Dentists Find Smoking Cessation Important but Seldom Offer Practical Support for Their Patients.
CONCLUSION: Although smoking cessation is discussed with patients, dentists are less active in taking concrete actions to support the patient on withdrawal. Adherence to the local treatment guideline was associated with better capabilities in dealing with tobacco withdrawal and a more active role in smoking cessation. The results suggest that more education on the local smoking cessation treatment guideline and cessation intervention is needed in order to overcome the remaining barriers to promoting effective smoking cessation in dental practice.
