Paul Pholeros and his colleagues have been working for decades on improving health by improving the living environment and housing of Indigenous people in Australia. This successful model is now spreading to other continents.

After all, the mouth is the gateway to the body. What could we do to promote oral health as an indispensable precursor to general health?
