Around 25 years ago, hepatitis C virus (HCV) was identified, and following intense research and tremendous advancements, the infection is now potentially curable and even complete viral eradication is possible. It is also evident that HCV can be involved in some oral disorders, but more research is clearly warranted on oral health of HCV-infected patients. Given the global estimates on HCV epidemic and its likely huge economic impact, primary prevention and secondary prevention are worldwide priorities. However, investments are still insufficient to achieve these goals.
