    Antimicrobial Resistance: Why should I care?

    Antimicrobial Resistance: Why should I care?

    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is recognized as one of the biggest threats to global health by the World Health Organization and is expected to be responsible for ten million deaths each year by 2050. This issue is of particular concern to dental teams, as dentists prescribe around 10% of all antibiotics for humans. 
    For many years, FDI has been at the forefront to raise awareness of antibiotic resistance in dentistry. This World Antimicrobial Awareness Week (WAAW), in a special episode of the Dental check-up podcast, we invited renowned experts in the field of AMR in dentistry to discuss the important role of dentists to tackle AMR. Listen to the full episode to discover the importance of antimicrobials as lifesaving drugs and how oral health professionals can help improve the global AMR crisis.
    At FDI, we want to create awareness that we can all be part of the solution by “Preventing antimicrobial resistance together”. Show your support and commitment by signing our pledge on antimicrobial resistance!
    Add the podcast to your playlist today to make sure you don’t miss an episode.
