The Alliance is “committed to the vision of promoting peace and well-being among people all over the world through oral health, by creating a common understanding of the social, political, economic and geo-environmental issues among students, educators, researchers, and all health professionals.”
Dr. Jack Dillenberg was elected to the Board of the Alliance. The Board will develop activities to promote peace and good health globally, particularly in areas of conflict.
