World Faces Rising Oral Health Care Crisis, Says Leading International Dental Organization

"The Vision 2020 report represents our effort to shape the future of oral health," said Prof. Tao Xu, the dean of Peking University School of Stomatology and the representative from Asia on FDI's Vision 2020 Task Force. "Our mandate was to identify the main challenges to expanding access to oral health care at a time when it is more urgent than ever. This report represents a call to action to ensure that oral health priorities receive sufficient attention and resources to combat the spread of oral disease."

The other members of the Vision 2020 Task Force include Dr. Monteiro de Silva; Dr. Gerhard Konrad Seeburger, national liaison officer, Associazione Italiana Odontoiatri; Dr. Gilberto Pucca, national coordinator, Oral Health Program - Brazil; Prof. David Williams, professor of global oral health at Barts and the London School of Medicine and Dentistry; and Steve Kess, vice president, global professional relations, Henry Schein, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSIC).
