Limited accessibility of oral health services, lack of health promotion and effective preventive programmes are associated with poor oral health across borders. Dental caries is easily preventable but remains one of the major cross-border oral health problems.

The established collaboration will increase knowledge and skills of dental professionals, upgrade the involved project stockholders’ knowledge, raise public awareness and make dental health care services more accessible.
