Guidelines for Dental Care Onboard Merchant Ships

The ship, where seafarers work and spend all their time during a voyage, is the best place for health intervention.

These guidelines for shipping companies provide information on the risks of dental problems for seafarers onboard merchant ships. They explain in detail all aspects of dental care such as extractions, fillings and emergency toothaches. They also advise shipping companies on how to implement a successful dental care campaign.
