Abstract

Contemporary evidence shows that: (i) racial minorities often bear the greatest burden of oral diseases; (ii) there are notable differences between socially advantaged and disadvantaged racial groups and; (iii) racial inequities in oral health persist over time and across space. In the four papers that follow, we seek to contribute to the discourse around oral health and racial inequities through recognition that racism has a structural basis and is embedded in long-standing social policy in almost every developed (and developing) nation.
