Featured Issue: Brazilian Journal of Oral Sciences Vol.12 No.3

The issue we are featuring today is no.3 from vol.12 of Brazilian Journal of Oral Sciences.

This issue includes "Workers oral health: a cross-sectional study" by Batista et al. This study aims to explore the oral health of adult workers from ages 20 to 64 in the working environment of a supermarket chain in São Paulo. 386 workers took part in the study and were assessed based on World Health Organization (1997) guidelines. 

In order to accurately examine the data, workers were separated into different groups based on age. The results showed that younger adult workers had better oral conditions and less tooth loss than other groups. The article concludes with recommendations for dental health care practitioners to promote older populations of workers to lower oral conditions and tooth loss.
