Winner of the ECG 2022 ECG Research Award sponsored by bredent

2022, Edinburgh, Scotland

The 2022 ECG Research Award, sponsored by WIFO AZM, was attributed to a study by Dr Lynn Janssens and Prof. Barbara Janssens from the ELOHA (Equal Lifelong Oral Health for All) research group, Gerodontology, Oral Health Sciences, Ghent University, Belgium with the topic: “The effect of a structured oral healthcare programme on oral hygiene in nursing homes in Flanders (Belgium)”.

The study evaluated the oral hygiene of residents of nursing homes being part of a structured oral healthcare programme (Gerodent) in Flanders (Belgium) and compared the results with previously collected relevant data in the same area. The researchers concluded that oral hygiene remains insufficient and the results were comparable to a previous intervention study.
