The Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong

The Origin

Promoting the Practice of Prevention of Oral Diseases

Many oral diseases and dental conditions are preventable with good oral hygiene practice and / or early treatment. Preventive dental care is the most cost-effective strategy to achieve good oral health. By a group of dentists firmly believe in the importance of prevention, the Society of Preventive Dentistry of Hong Kong was founded in 2021 with a mission of promoting the practice of preventive measures in dentistry.

Preventive Dentistry

Preventive dentistry is dental care that helps maintain good oral health. Poor oral health causes pain, discomfort, affects speech, ability to eat, sleep, self-esteem and confidence. Preventing future dental diseases and preventing complications from existing dental conditions are crucial to the future sustainability of oral health, which is an important and integral part of general health.
